It looks like 2014 is coming to a rapid close, and with the arrival of a New Year comes the potential for new beginnings. Including New Year’s Resolutions. And Spend less, Save More is the third most common New Year’s Resolution.
I’ve found a few links with some tips on how to make your New Year’s Resolutions successful:

As I was contemplating what my New Year’s Resolution should be, I couldn’t help but wonder, how long did I think about my resolution from last year?
Typically I forget what my resolution is within a month or two, and it is almost always long forgotten by the summer months. Last year, I created a list to help me remember my resolution. I wrote out a list of action steps that I could take to make my resolution successful. Every month I had one step that put me closer to my end goal. By having a monthly reminder, I was able to make strides in succeeding in my New Year’s Resolution. A monthly list of goals works well for me.
As a side note, my resolution last year was to get my wardrobe and shopping under control. This blog is a reflection of that progress over time.
