Money Matters: What’s Around the Corner?

October 1, 2021

Hello,

Welcome to October. The month snuck up on us about as quickly as the little ghosts and goblins soon will on Halloween.

And not to frighten you further, but the holidays are just around the corner - barely two months away. Yet, around the world, toymakers, large retailers, and manufacturers are already warning that this year some products won't be in place in time for the holidays, while extra shipping costs and delays are adding to bills for both buyers and sellers. It could be a real mess.

Read more about it in the Wall Street Journal article below. What can you do so you don't end up empty-handed later? Plan now. October is the perfect time to get in control of your finances before you feel the pull of holiday spending.

Budgeting and planning now can help put you in the best position to pursue everything on your wish list. And, if you could use some expert guidance with your financial planning, please contact Sally Lawson, Malvern Bank's Senior Investment Advisor. She'll help you review your current financial strategy and prepare for the future. You can reach Sally at 610.695.3651.

These articles can help you start the fourth quarter on the right foot. Share them with anyone who might have YOU on their holiday shopping list. Let's talk soon.

Sincerely,

Anthony C. Weagley
