New Year, new budget control Jan 23

It’s fun to splurge during the holidays. It’s not as much fun, though, to face the consequences when the bills come due in January.

With a new approach, the holidays – and every other time of year – can be easier and less stressful. Sandy Syms of Consumer Credit Counseling Service will present “New Year, New Budget” at 10 a.m. and repeated at 6 p.m. Tuesday, January 23, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The programs are free; no registration required.

Syms will share tips and advice on how to create a spending plan that avoids the end-of-the-month scramble.
