Financial resolutions I’m determined to keep in 2017

2017 financial resolutions

Hi guys!

It’s been awhile since I posted anything in my blog.

Sorry! I was a bit busy. Mom was not well. Had to look after her in the holidays. And after the holidays were over, had to take care of pending assignments at office.

A very Happy New Year to all of you! Love you all! Have a great 2017!

Resolutions are meant to be broken. And, financial resolutions can be easily broken years after years. 🙂

Last year, I made a few financial resolutions. And, like every year, I failed to keep most of them. So, this year, I have taken a different strategy. I have made only 2 resolutions so that it doesn’t become an impossible task to keep those resolutions.

My first resolution

File my tax papers early: Last year was hell for me. I filed my income tax returns just before the deadline. I had to run to the tax planner several days, organize all the papers hurriedly and do some complex calculations hastily. It was disgusting. This year, I’m going to do everything in advance. I will finish everything early and relax later.

Since it’s a short-term resolution. So, I guess, it’ll be easier for me to keep it. What do you say? 🙂

My second resolution

Move to a bigger apartment: Yes, this is a big resolution. I’m sick of living in my tiny rental apartment. I want to move into a bigger one. I have saved some money for down payment. Rest, I’ll borrow.

I don’t know if I’ll be successful. But, I’m determined to take all the steps to buy a big apartment in 2017.

What is your financial resolution in 2017? Have you made a plan to keep your resolution? How was 2016 financially?
