In January I often review my insurance policies, update my client contracts, prepare the previous year's tax
information. There are probably a few more things (I know it takes longer than it appears on the list) but that is the general idea of them.
Plus there is goal setting for the coming year. Money Saving Mom has some key points to keep in mind when goal-setting:
1. Determine Your Priorities
2. Create a List of Focus Areas
3. Break Your Goals Down Into Bite-Sized Pieces
4. Set an End Date
5. Track Your Progress
