Final Note

What are your financial New Year’s resolutions?

Sarah Gardner Jan 1, 2013

On Facebook today we asked you all about your financial New Year’s resolutions. I told everybody I was starting small this year — like, giving up those $3.55 lattes at Starbucks. One of you suggested I’ll only last a week.I think that was another latte addict.

Others offered their money resolutions, including: drink water instead of soda, eat out less, pay for more things with cash instead of plastic, and I love this one: get a promotion. That’s from Carlos in Newark.

Carlos, let us know if it happens.
