Ask the Readers: Hope in a New Year? (Chance to Win $10)
** Congrats to our winners! ***
- Comment #33: Always Hopeful Submitted by LiveCheap.com on December 29, 2009 - 20:24 Looking to be in the best shape of my life in 2010 with a great runup in the second half of 2009. Don't expect the economy to do very well and everything will be a challenge for most people but opportunities still present themselves. Looking forward to cranking up LiveCheap further and having new addition to the family and spending more time with the people I love. Hard work doesn't always pay off every day, but over the long haul it wins out in any economy. Best wishes for everyone this year, next and beyond.
- @savingforhome I love the fresh start of the new year! The end of 2009 was extremely stressful, so I'm looking forward to the new year. @wisebread #WBAsk
As everyone relaxes from a whirlwind of holiday activity, cleans their houses and settles back into their regular routine, many are looking ahead to a bright future in 2010. Others aren't so convinced of the new year's promises, as the job market may be bleak in their area or tax time signals new financial difficulties.
With each passing year, however, we like to reflect upon the old and look hopefully toward the new, and this year is no different. What about you? Are you hopeful for what 2010 may bring? Are you scared? Do you prefer to just keep doing what you've been doing with little regard to the changing of the dates?
