Though it probably seemed like only yesterday when you were ringing in the new year, suddenly we’re hurtling toward the end of June. And that can only mean one thing: You have just six months left to ensure that you meet your financial goals for the year. Here are five moves you’ll want to make today.
1. See how your budget is holding up
If you were responsible enough to create a budget earlier this year, you’ve hopefully been reaping the benefits of having an easy way to track your spending and identify savings opportunities. But since expenses can evolve over time, it pays to take another thorough look at your budget and see whether it’s realistic.

For example, if you budgeted a certain amount for commuting costs but are now paying much more at the pump, you may find that you’re exceeding the figure you initially allocated for transportation — in which case, you may want to reduce another spending category to allow for that increase. The key is to make sure that your budget actually aligns with your expenses, and just as importantly, that you’re doing a good job of following it.
