Are You Realistic about What You Can Afford?

Would you like to save money in 2021? These ideas will get you started on the right financial path.  2020 was a tough year for us.  To be frugal in 2021 is more important than ever.  

Saving money isn’t the easiest thing to do, so I suggest start small and simple. Start with 5 areas in your budget you can fix and then continue working on your finances from there.

Here are some ideas to get your brain juice flowing:

  • Instead of luxury vacations, plan budget trips.
  • Shop at discount chains like Marshalls, Ross, and TJMaxx.
  • If you can’t afford it, don’t buy it.
  • Purchase a pre-owned car instead of a brand new one. Most cars depreciate so quickly. If you happen to wreck your car, you could end up owing more than it’s worth, even with insurance coverage. It is a good idea to invest in comprehensive auto insurance to make sure you’re fully covered.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others, and don’t try to keep up with the neighbors.

The U.S. Dollar Took a Hit Today as the Treasury Yields Softened

The EURUSD moved higher after the U.S. CPI results failed to meet the consensus.




The EURUSD moved up after the U.S. CPI report.  The consumer prices rose at a monthly 0.1% and 2.3% over the last twelve months, which came in below the expectations.  The euro recently found its footing near 1.1430 and had risen against the U.S. dollar nicely.
