Covid, the pandemic, and lockdowns have affected just about every aspect of our lives. Wearing masks, virtual schooling, and social distancing are just a few things we’ve experienced that will likely change how we fundamentally view the world. Here on our show, of course, we’re all about personal finance and so as we approach a 1 year anniversary of the covid pandemic, the big question that we’re wondering is: has covid changed how we handle our money? In what ways have we changed how we earn, spend, save, and invest. And what happened in the past 12 months that can inform our ability to be financially successful in the future? Whether you’re better off now than a year ago or if your finances are in rough shape, there are takeaways that will help us to win with our money.
