As 2011 comes to a close, many of us are reflecting upon our year and thinking about our New Year’s Resolutions. For some of us, those resolutions might be to eat healthier or to finish a home improvement project. For others, these resolutions will be financial.

We recently asked our Facebook and Twitter audience which financial resolutions they’re thinking about as we’re heading into 2012.

Ally Aks: What's your Financial Resolution?

Judging by the results, people are most interested in securing immediate financial security by getting rid of their credit-card debt and building a healthy emergency fund.

If you have a financial New Year’s Resolution, we want to hear about it. Tell us about your resolution in the comments section, or let us know on Facebook or Twitter. At the end of December, we’ll spotlight some of our favorite resolutions. We may even check in over the course of the year to see how our respondents are doing.

What better way to stick to your resolution than to have the Ally community cheering you on?
