Covid set me back financially this year. As a result, we’re having a very frugal Christmas. Can you offer any tips on setting financial goals for next year? I want to be better prepared for what may lie ahead!
Getting Ready for 2021
Dear Getting Ready,
I am so sorry for the setbacks you have suffered during this pandemic. Millions of people just like you are looking forward to the new year with great anticipation and are hoping to make improvements in our finances.
New Year, New You
January is typically a time of renewal. For many of us, that includes diets, health and fitness goals, relationships, or financial plans.
