Question of the Day: What is one of the top 3 financial resolutions for 2022?



  • Which resolution from the top 3 do you think is most important? Why?
  • Have you ever thought about making a financial resolution as you start a new year? If so, what was it?
  • Select one of the resolutions in the top 3. What are some strategies you could use to achieve that goal?

Here's the ready-to-go slides for this Question of the Day that you can use in your classroom.

Behind the numbers (Fidelity & CNBC):

"As we await the beginning of a new year, it’s natural to reflect on what worked (and didn’t work) this year and where we want to go next year — especially when it comes to our money. Resolutions can be an exciting and motivating way to think about new goals and actually start working toward them.

... saving more money, spending less, and paying down debt are all top-of-mind for many Americans. There are many ways to achieve these goals, but the most important step is considering what’s right for your personal circumstances. This will help set you up for success when working toward those goals."
