So what can you do about your money stress? One big step in the right direction is simply to get organized about your finances, so you know where all your financial documents are kept, and what to keep and what to toss, experts say. Nick Holeman, a certified financial planner at investing app Betterment, says that it’s key you do this both for your own sanity — it’s hard to feel in control when you’re living amidst stacks and stacks of financial papers –and because it helps you make smarter money decisions around what you’re saving, investing and spending. “People who are aware of what is going on with their finances tend to make better financial decisions,” he notes.
