Spring is now here and many of us take the time to prepare our homes to start shifting to the new season.  How many of us do the same thing with our finances?  When is the last time you cleaned out your purse/wallet?  The tax refunds have come and gone.  Did you accomplish your financial goals?  Getting out of debt takes constant monitoring of your finances.  Start by looking at your credit card debt–don’t be tempted to keep charging but focus on paying the debt down.  It’s a good time to doublecheck those interest rates.  Start looking for cards with lower interest rates where youcan transfer your balance.  Happy Spring!
