Our snow finally melted and we got our first glimpse of spring this week. It always feels good to open the windows and doors and get some fresh air in the house and do some spring cleaning.
It’s also a good time to do some spring cleaning in your financial house. Here’s a few financial spring cleaning tips I’m working on today:
- Throw away bills, receipts, and papers you don’t need to keep anymore .
- Empty out your cash back accounts  that you used for holiday purchases.
- Cancel the free magazine subscriptions  that you don’t read anymore.
Ok, that was just one pile of papers on my desk!
Before I move onto the rest of the den, I also have a huge stack of papers on the pros and cons of giving part of our business to our children (think family tax planning).
Stay tuned, as I’m sure I’ll have more to share on the subject once I decide how to proceed.
