Spring cleaning anyone?
We are less than a month away from the first day of spring!! Now, I know that doesn't mean we instantly wake up to budding flowers and warmer temps, but it does offer a little hope that these cold, wintery days will soon end. And... it gets me looking ahead to some spring cleaning.
Last year, many folks took the time during our COVID shut-in to purge and organize areas of their homes. Were you one of the ones?? How many folks got into a project and became overwhelmed? How many started and didn't finish? How long did the organization last? Okay... no confession necessary! Whether or not you purged and organized last year, chances are you're looking ahead to some spring cleaning on the to-do list. When tackling those packed closets and digging out from the winter boots and coats, don't forget to take some time and get your finances and important papers some attention.
Making sure you have your important papers organized and updated is one of those tasks that should be on the list this time of year. Why? Well, for starters, tax season is here and nothing makes tax time more frustrating than not knowing where all your important papers are kept. While you're prepping for tax filing, dig out those estate plan papers and give them a once over. You do have them, right? If not, your first task is to call us for a consultation! If you do have the important documents.... are they current? Are they relevant? Are they still serving your wishes? If you're not sure, we're here to review them with you so you can have peace of mind that things are in order.
Be sure to check out our recent blog posts. We've linked them here in this newsletter. These posts give you some handy lists to refer to in getting your finances organized. Here's to some spring cleaning... to closets, to junk drawers, to finances, and to important papers! You've got this!
