Whenever we think of New Year’s resolutions, health kick is always the priority. Here are 3 New Year’s resolutions for your financial wellbeing in 2021.

1. Get a home loan health check
Question: Do you know the interest rate on your home loan?

Don’t stress if you don’t, studies show that about half of mortgage holders can’t recall their home loan interest rate.

You could very well be paying too much.

This is why making a home loan health check your New Year’s resolution is so important, particularly with interest rates at record low levels after a series of RBA cash rate cuts.

2. Set a financial or lifestyle goal
With renewed post-COVID optimism on the horizon, now might be time to upgrade your existing home Or with international travel on hold for a while, maybe now’s a good opportunity to explore Australia with a new set of wheels or create a passive income via new investment.

Whatever your flavour, consider taking stock of what you want to achieve in 2021 so that you can work out a plan to achieve it.

3. Cut back on your microtransactions
Once you’ve identified a big financial goal to hit in 2021, you’ll want to start saving towards it.

Micro-transactions – purchases that are low in cost and trivial in nature – can be a real obstacle.

That’s a saving of $1200.

With a little bit of budget tinkering, you can save yourself hundreds – even thousands – of dollars each month.
