With 2021 ending and 2022 right around the corner, now is the time to start making those resolutions for the new year. And what better place to start than with your finances?

While getting financials in order at the beginning of every year is a ritual for most, it doesn’t hurt to keep things fresh with some out-of-the-box resolutions. The average American calls their resolutions quits by the time February rolls around (or never follows through with them in the first place), according to the New York Post. So, a new perspective might just be the ticket to sticking to the financial plans you intend to make.

An article published by Wallet Genius takes a new perspective on classic financial goals with suggestions that include talking to your children and spouse about money, not confusing spending less with saving, considering money as a tool instead of a goal, and even volunteering.

Use the helpful solutions below from CNBC to stick to your financial goals throughout the new year and beyond.

5 Financial Tips for the New Year

Set up autopay for everything: From your utility bills to your rent, automate payments so you never have a late fee. Plus, excellent payment history will be reflected on your credit score. You can also automate money directly from your paycheck to your savings, so you won’t even know you’re missing it while saving at the same time.

Give your budget a makeover:  If it’s been a while since you’ve tweaked your budget, take the time to restructure it to fit your most current lifestyle.

Match savings to spending:  For one month, try this savings technique that allows you to save as much as you spend. Simply add a dollar to savings for every dollar you spend. Or you could put a cap on it, like saving $5 for each purchase made throughout the month.

Try a “savings spree”:  Save the dollar amount of each calendar day for one month. Start by saving $1 on the first of the month, $2 on the second, and so on. You could end up saving around $500 for the month!

Bump up your retirement contribution by 1%: A little goes a long way. Investing a few extra dollars per month into your retirement account could pay out big in the end.
