What are your New Year’s Resolutions?

A survey by Gocompare has revealed that getting a grip on our finances was the most popular New Year’s Resolution for Brits in 2012, with 49% of those who planned to make a resolution putting this at the top of their list.

This put it ahead of getting fit (46%) and losing weight (45%), and this is the first time since 2008 that financial affairs have topped the list.

Looking specifically at financial related resolutions, 40% of those making resolutions committed to reducing outgoings, 35% resolved to pay off debt, 25% said they would deposit more money in a savings account, 12% said they would invest in the stock market and 10% aimed to save more into a pension.
