It’s that time of year again — “resolution season,” and other than losing weight or exercising more, few areas of our lives are subjected to New Year’s resolutions more than personal finance.
So, if you’re going to make New Year’s personal finance resolution, here are 5 to choose from:
1. Get an insurance checkup.
The potential for major financial consequences of a catastrophic health issue, damage to your home or car, loss of life, or loss of your ability to generate an income means that insurance simply must be a priority in our modern life as a way to hedge against risk of loss. Remember that most bankruptcies are caused by uninsured health problems.
Make it one of your 2010 resolutions to take a little time this year and make sure you’ve got your insurance bases covered by talking with your own agent or checking with NetQuote for auto, health, life, renters, or any other insurance. NetQuote will gather quotes from several different insurers for you, allowing you to control the process a lot more than normal.
