Time to give the finances a spring cleaning

What is it about beautiful 75-degree, sunny days in March that make people clean out their garages, closets and foundations with almost a manic fervor? Well, since I live in central Illinois, I wouldn’t know.

Whatever the reason, a 2020 survey by the American Cleaning Institute found that 78% of Americans do some type of spring cleaning. If you are one of them, great. But when you’re done cleaning your garage, take some time to spring clean your finances as well.

I’d advise you to target one area of ​​your finances each week in April.

First, examine your spending and see if there is any area you could cut back in to save money. A budgeting app and your credit card statement are good tools to use to see your spending history.
