Why should you spring clean your finances?

Let’s admit it, we are not all Marie Kondo.  Some of us have a few more plates to keep in the air and sometimes the thought of spring cleaning of any kind just fills us with dread.  Don’t lose heart, it really is more simple than it sounds - 30 minutes a day is not really that large in the greater scheme of things and could really benefit you and your family.  Here are just a few reasons you should regularly spring clean your finances:-

1.       Order creates clarity

 Here at TWiCe, we believe that cluttered surroundings create a cluttered mind.  When your paperwork is in order, you can make better informed financial decisions that will benefit you in the long run.  Not only that, you can refer to any paperwork you need without the stress of hunting for it in a pile of unfiled paperwork.

 

2.       Peace of mind

 When your income and outgoings are clear, you can start to put some money aside. A budget is not meant to be restrictive, but provide you with balance which is key to your overall well-being, both financially and mentally.  Having a nest egg gives you piece of mind, should an unexpected expense arrive.  Here at TWiCE, we are all about simplifying your money so it works the way you need it to for your own specific circumstances.

 

3.       Fuller pockets

Organised finances and reduced outgoings means more money in your pocket for savings or spending on making memories with loved ones.  Win-win for everyone.

 

4.       Helps you meet your long term goals

 When you know where you are with your finances, you can manage your money better and look at investing for your future while making your money work for you.   Long term financial goals can then become realistically achievable.
