Get your yearly budget in order

Plan ahead this year and take a few minutes to get your yearly budget done. If you’ve never done one there are many resources online to help.

Clean out your holiday decorations

As you put up your holiday decorations this year, think about thinning out your collection. Organizing your decorations now will make things easier next year.

Expand your knowledge

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, learn something new about the civil rights movement or consider virtually marching in San Antonio’s famous MLK Jr. Day march and celebration.

Cozy up with a good book

Cold weather pairs perfectly with a good book. Pick out something fresh you’ve been wanting to read or even reread an old favorite. You can’t go wrong when it’s chilly outside.


Support small businesses

With 2020 behind us, the effects are still present. Keep supporting the small businesses around you that your family enjoys.

Pizza night!

If you haven’t had a “create your own pizza” night at home, you’re missing out! This fun and interactive meal is an excel-lent way to bring the family together.

NCAA National Championship game

On January 11th the NCAA National Championship football game will be played. If you are a sports fan, you won’t want to miss this.

Give back

Start your year on a positive note and volunteer at a local charity. Volunteering tends to die down after the holidays. Let’s make 2021 the best year yet by giving back to our communities each month not just certain times of the year.

Make cookies from scratch

Go to a simpler time with your family and bake cookies from scratch. These warm little desserts will make for a fun activity and a yummy treat. If you’re being healthy, look for a creative healthy cookie recipe to try.
