A New Year is upon us yet again. With it comes the lovely tradition of New Year’s resolutions. You know these ones … I will lose weight, I will get organized, and I will not eat all of my daughter’s gummy snacks. Oh, that last one may just be mine.
Another popular resolution is becoming financially savvy. Either way, it’s one thing to make a resolution, keeping it is another.
