Feeling like a deer in the headlights right now? You’re not alone! Soaring inflation, stock market crashing, a pandemic that just won’t go away – and the only light at the end of the tunnel looks like the oncoming train of recession! We’re all getting squeezed from both ends…
It’s costing you 60% more than last year to fill up your gas tank.
Last month, you thought about buying a new home. This month mortgage rates have priced you totally out of the market.
Global supply chain glitches mean that things you bought all the time are almost impossible to find. (Seriously, a sriracha hot sauce shortage?!?)
Your low-interest charge cards are projected to average 20% in a couple of months – and the high-interest rate ones will be off the charts.
