Planning for a big event?

Is it a home remodel? That big family vacation to Disney? Replacing an automobile? Or even helping the grandkids with college?

We get it! We are all about enjoying retirement and having FUN - but before you splurge be sure to ask yourself these questions. 

1. What is it?

2. When do we expect to spend this money?

3. What do we really need to accomplish this goal?

4. Do we really need this OR need to do this?
