Getting Into a Cost Cutting Mindset

We can get so used to doing things in the same old ways that’s hard to make a change. Any change can be difficult, but if you are successful with small changes, they can help you to succeed with large changes. Taking time to make small mindset changes can lead you to a path of financial freedom, just by concentrating on doing things differently and thinking about things differently.

Tune in for suggested mindset changes that can help you on the path to those significant changes. The Compass Catholic blog has more on this idea.

Filing your tax return is a once-a-year event but a mid-year review will help you maximize your tax savings. It’ll only take 30 minutes to do a mid-year review, and it could easily save you thousands of dollars.

Birthdays on a Budget

Birthdays can be budget busters if you get carried away with an over the top party, tons of gifts and spending money instead of time with your child.

Don’t try to outdo the neighbors. Instead, make each birthday memorable by having special family birthday traditions, which will be cherished by your child much more than any birthday gifts they may receive.

The Compass blog has more on developing special birthday memories your kids will remember and pass on to their children.

Master Your Money

A large part of mastering your money is based on giving it place in your life it deserves, and it’s not first place. Everything in our culture influences us to think that more is better, especially when it comes to money. Yes, more money may ease the financial pressure for a while, but it will never provide lasting happiness. 

Master your money by learning to be a good steward of God’s many blessings, including the way you give, save and spend.  

Read the Compass blog to learn more about how to master your money.
