New Year's resolutions usually center around more exercise and a better diet, but financial expert Jordan Goodman says now is a good time to make some sound financial decisions.

Goodman joined News 12's Lisa Salvadorini in the News 12 studio to discuss resolutions that will make your wallet healthier.

Goodman says people need to commit to sticking to a budget and getting debt under control.

The author of "Master Your Debt" says people should monitor their credit report, set up automatic investment plans, and sign up for health insurance.
