Yesterday I saw three different commercials advertising back-to-school specials. Can it be that close already? I’m done with school now, and it will be a while before I have school-aged children, but back-to-school still feels more renewing than the new year.
This summer, I’m going to change my life. I’m going to do the thing I didn’t think I could do, and when I go back to school I’ll walk the halls with confidence and those popular kids won’t even be able to touch me because I’m so brave and awesome and happy with my life.
This week, to celebrate that feeling of wanting to make a big change before the leaves fall and the weather chills, all of our blog posts will be about handling the finances of major life changes. Moving, divorce, marriage, children – all emotionally-charged life changes that require administrative support, if you will, including some big financial decisions. Deciding to move forward on any of these, in fact, may be dependent on making some big financial decisions first.
Are you dealing with the financial issues surrounding a major life-change? Any tips or stories for our readers?
