Do you have a financial hangover from the holidays? Are you trying to figure out which bills will get paid and which bills will have to wait until next month? Are you hoping your tax refund will be enough to pay off any extravagant purchases you made for your family or for yourself? If so, you are not alone. According to Forbes, Americans were estimated to spend $630.5 billion this past holiday season, 3.7% more than last year. Unfortunately, a huge portion of those purchases will be made on plastic and causing some of us to carry even more debt.
To help all of us out (Yes, I’m including myself), I’ve put together a list of websites and blogs that provide advice and resources for personal finances. I’m not endorsing anyone and I’m not getting paid for providing links to these websites or blogs. I hope you find some information that will help you make better financial decisions or help you create plan that gets you closer to your financial goals.
