A bit of Spring/Summer cleaning never hurt anyone, right?! Get rid of all the junk that's lying around - whether you donate it, have a garage sale or give it to family. Not only can you get rid of things, but it's a great time to clean the house and make it spick and spam for 2016! You're sinuses will thank you!
Cut Lose Ties
Do you have people in your life who you keep trying to make an effort with but it's like you're doing all the work? It's time to let it all go. Clean up your Facebook friends, the numbers in your phone and go in to the new year with only those that matter. Not only will you feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders, but you won't have to see all those unnecessary Facebook posts that can be a little annoying. Cut those loose ties and let go of people who you haven't spoken to in a while and you will feel a lot better about starting 2016 with only close friends and family.
Have Goals & New Years Resolutions
What exactly do you want to achieve in 2016? Get those goals and NY resolutions set so you can begin the year doing what you want to do. Maybe you want to lose weight, move up in your career or get involved in volunteering - whatever it is, get your mindset ready so you can begin as soon as 2016 hits. Goals will motivate you to do your best and succeed in whatever it is that you want.

It doesn't have to be perfect, but organising how much you want to save, your expenditures and emergency cash can help you track your money and make your year a lot easier.
