Happy New Year (for the dozenth time). How’s your 2019 going? And how’s your money looking?
If you care about your account balance as much as we do, you’ll be looking to build better money habits.
It’s not too much to make resolutions specifically about your finances, and we have¬some good suggestions¬†to help you get started. Take them seriously – they could be the difference between a good year and a cycle of being broke.
Here are more things to pay attention to this weekend:
1. Email Resolution
Inbox zero, that so-called achievement of having no unopened or¬†unreplied¬†email, has been hyped as a sign of efficiency.
But what if it isn’t?¬ Will the world end if you reply messages when you can instead of jumping at every email notification?
Turns out¬letting your inbox overflow¬†may be the new way to live your best life.
2. News Material
3. Get In

4. For A Good Time
If you’re up for it, going out can be fun this weekend.
The Metaphor¬†is hosting a games night from 7:00 pm on Friday, a spoken word event is on at¬Bogobiri House, Ikoyi this Saturday and you can catch a new exhibition opening on Sunday at¬Rele Art Gallery.
