ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  More people may be focused on trimming their spending rather than trimming their waistlines this New Year.     

The most common New Year's resolutions are usually to lose weight and to quit smoking. But financial goals may top the list in 2009.     

High unemployment, home foreclosures, and the unstable stock market have more people focusing on their spending habits.

"I plan to do things differently, spend my money wisely," said one person.

Another pledged: "Don't use credit cards for the whole year. We got through Christmas without them, we are going to try to get through the year without them."

"My new year's resolution is to lose weight,"  said another.

While another planned "To have a deeper and closer walk with God."  

Psychologists say you have a higher chance of making your resolutions stick if you map out a plan and set realistic goals.
