Protect Finances From Volatility


It’s always important to protect your finances, in good times and especially in volatile times. Here are ways to get started now:


  • Monitor and improve your credit score: In the U.S., you get a free credit report each year at Also, www.creditkarma.comoffers free credit scores and helpful tips and insights to help you manage your credit. This is critical for those buying houses because your credit score may influence mortgages made available to you.
  • Review your spending: A budget is a great tool for monitoring cash flow. You can review where you’re spending your money and where you have an opportunity to save. For example, streaming services and subscriptions pile up quickly. Take a reality check and list all monthly charges, then sort through them to cut extra spending.
  • Make a savings plan: Do you put money aside each month into a savings account? If you do, do you assign a job for it? Research shows that those who know what they’re saving for are more likely to fulfill their savings goals. Save for specific goals to stay motivated.
  • Have a rainy-day plan: In addition to a savings fund, it is helpful to always have a backup plan for bringing in extra cash. Think about a side-hustle, like freelance writing, or items you can sell online. You may even decide to sell arts and crafts online if you have a special artistic talent. Don’t underestimate your skills and money-earning potential.
  • Don’t bury your head in the sand: If you lose your job, or are left suddenly out of work for illness, don’t avoid the situation and potential impact on your finances. Take swift action: Prioritize which bills need to be paid first and call providers and explain the situation. Most service companies will work with customers to pay bills at a lower monthly amount — they prefer this than nothing at all. Then you’ll save the late charges and potential to cut off services to your home.
  • Work with a financial advisor: Once you’ve completed these tasks, check-in with an advisor and find out if you’re spending money smartly. They’ll help to identify opportunities for improvement.

How To Block Spam Calls


Those unwanted and annoying spam calls seem to get more sophisticated and harder to detect, using local numbers or spoofing your own phone number. Even if you hang up immediately or unsubscribe, they still seem to call back. A recent estimate placed the number of spam calls in 2019 at over 50 billion! Here’s a quick how-to to help stop (or at least reduce) spam calls:

1. Block numbers one-at-a-time. This is a helpful solution if it is the same number calling repeatedly. Search your phone model online plus “how to block phone numbers.”

2. Work with your carrier. Some mobile providers have software that stops or filters these calls. AT&T uses Call Protect, Verizon Wireless uses Call Filter, and T-Mobile uses Scam Shield and Scam Block.

3. Add your number to the Do Not Call Registry. Visit to add yourself to the list that telemarketers are supposed to honor.

4. Use the phone’s software. Whether you have an Android or iPhone, they both have Do Not Disturb functions that allow you to block all calls, unless they are from contacts saved in your phone. Check your user’s guide (or online) for instructions.

5. Block calls on your landline. You can buy a call-blocking device that stops unwanted calls and diverts others to voicemail. Some of these devices have a blacklist of problem numbers that you can add numbers to as well.

6. Register a complaint with the FTC. While the FTC might not follow up every complaint, they do monitor which companies are annoying and scamming customers. They have been known to shut down some of these spammers, too. Report unwanted calls to

How To Alleviate Itchy Skin


Winter skin or stress? We all get itches, but you may be surprised at what is causing the annoyance.


Causes of itchy skin: The everyday causes are more common than you might think. Extreme temperatures, air conditioning or dry environments, dust, stress, hot showers, and chemical sunscreens are all skin irritants. Solutions: It’s helpful to know what you’re reacting to, first. For hot showers, instead take a warm shower and then apply moisturizer. Avoid extreme temperatures at home and work, vacuum and dust surfaces (especially blinds and curtains, which are culprits of collecting dust) regularly — even better, buy an air purifier to take dust particles out of the air. Use natural sunscreens without chemicals and try to manage stress levels effectively.

 Creative Date Ideas


Trying to keep a relationship fun can be costly, especially in the early days. Impressing someone new with fancy dinners or tickets to see live music can be expensive. Here are some ideas to keep the magic alive, while sticking to a budget:

  • Go out for breakfast: you can have dates at any time of day. Plus, breakfasts are considerably cheaper than going out for dinner.
  • Fix a picnic and watch the sunset together in a park. You can save money making your own food rather than takeout, too.
  • Go to an open mic night. You still get the thrill of getting dressed up and going out together, but without the cost of expensive venue tickets.
  • Enjoy a hike together! What better way to get to know someone than walking together?
  • Go to a You-Pick. Whether it’s summer or fall, you can still pick for two full seasons: berries in the summer and apples and pumpkins in the fall.
  • Cook a special dinner together. Just because you’re not going out doesn’t mean you can’t eat a delicious meal together. Why not try a new recipe, too?

– Turn off devices one hour before bed.

– Use the do not disturb function on your phone for 10 hours each night.

– Don’t watch TV in your bedroom.

– Ensure your bedroom is cool to promote a restful sleep – waking up feeling hot is a cause of restlessness.

Real Estate Corner…


Q. What other options do I have besides refinancing my home loan if I’m struggling to make payments?


A. If you’re “underwater” on payments, you may decide to move out of your home.  Here are some options to consider:


  • Rent the property.  This will help you make your monthly mortgage payments but you’ll still pay for maintenance on your property.
  • Do a short sale.  This involves selling your home for less than you owe on the loan.  The bank may forgive the difference between what you owe and the final sales price the buyer pays.
  • Do a Deed-in-lieu of Foreclosure.  You give your home back to the lender in exchange for forgiveness of the mortgage.  You may still have to pay the difference between what the bank sells the home for and what you still owe, plus legal fees.  Many banks won’t consider this until a short sale has been attempted.

Before you do anything, talk to an expert about your problem, including a REALTOR®, a foreclosure counselor, a tax expert, a credit counselor and/or an attorney.  To learn about more options for struggling homeowners, call and ask for my Free Consumer Report called
“10 Options To Avoid Foreclosure.”  I’ll send a copy right to you.
