Infographic: Money-related resolutions hit record high
By Kristin McGrath and Juan Rodriguez
More people are making money-related New Year's resolutions this year, according to Fidelity Investment's fourth annual New Year Financial Resolutions survey. A record 46 percent of the 1,012 adults surveyed said they typically make financial resolutions (that's up from 35 percent in 2009).
This year's top resolution? Saving more money. That's been the top resolution for three years running, but what consumers are saving that money for has changed. According to Fidelity, there's been a shift from saving for short-term financial goals (such as a car or an emergency fund) to long-term ones (such as retirement).
Check out the chart below for this year's top financial resolutions.
