Getting your priorities (and finances) straight in 2012.

So we’re nearly two months into 2012. How’re we doing? If you’re like me, you’re knee-deep in tax land right about now. A perfect time to get a really good look at your finances. Do they align with your priorities?
Think about what you have, what you want and what you really need. This can vary greatly person to person. It is easy to confuse what you need and what you want. When it boils down to it all we really need is to provide basics (food, clothing and shelter) to our families in a safe environment and (fate willing) live out healthy, happy lives.
