The One Thing I Clean Every Year (That's Not My Home)

Sophie Miura

Spring heralds a clean-slate mentality, but when everyone else is busy decluttering their cupboards, colour-coding their closet, and deep-cleaning their carpet, I take a different approach. Just a few months after the New Year is the perfect time to take a fresh look at your finances, review how you're tracking toward your goals, and adjust your game plan. 

If the thought of sifting through receipts sounds as scintillating as cleaning your gutters, we hear you—thankfully, there is a way to minimise your time and maximise the rewards. Each year, I set aside an afternoon to do a three-hour "deep clean" of my finances. Not only does it make me feel more in control of my money, but it also reduces tax time stress and gives me a new burst of much-needed motivation to keep tracking toward my goals.

Start the timer—Here's how to spring-clean your finances in three hours flat.
