The holidays are tough on most people’s finances, but it is possible to get back on track if you went over budget. You should start by repaying any holiday debt and then you can replenish your savings throughout the year. Over the next few months, plan ahead for the funds you’ll need for a summer vacation or for the next holiday season. This way, you can be prepared and save for your purchases in advance. With a good plan, you can get your finances back on track for 2019.
