Weekly roundup: Mortgages, Charities and New Cars

by Kristina Tahnyak on January 10, 2014 · 4 comments

Good morning Dinks and Happy Friday. We have a whole bunch of great posts for you today that are filled with New Year’s resolutions such as paying off your mortgage, buying a new car and giving to charity.

What is your New Year’s goal?

I find that two weeks is usually the amount of time it takes people to adjust to something and decide if they are going to stick with it – so are you sticking to your New Year’s resolutions?

Goals are one of my favourite things because I like having something to look forward to.  I plan my year in January because I like to know what’s coming.  Sometimes I pick up smaller goals throughout the year as I have new ideas or discover new things (usually vacations), but for the most part I know where I’m going and what I’m working towards at the beginning of each year.

See how our personal finance friends are setting goals for the New Year:

Speaking of new cars, my wife wants one. I hate going through the process. This time she wants to lease a car and I think that is a bad deal. But whatever she wants I will gladly do for her even if I do not agree with the financial impact. Yikes.
I am now going to check out the linked posts, so thanks.
