Lee, Massachusetts — June 6. 2016 —Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, published a new article entitled, “Spring Has Sprung! 4 ‘To-Dos’ for Your Financial Spring-Cleaning List.” In the article, he encourages readers to create a financial spring-cleaning list, assessing such issues as budgeting, debt, retirement planning, and investment strategy.
On budgeting, Mark writes, “A compressive and clearly defined budget can keep your finances from falling into disrepair. A budget allows you to know how much money you have, how much money you need, and how much money you have to spare. Simply put, a budget is a master plan for your financial security and posterity. Creating a budget (and here’s the hard part: sticking to it) can revolutionize your financial capacities to adequately plan and forecast for future financial needs. Are you meticulous about your budget? Or do you frequently fret by the end of month, wondering where all your money has gone?”
