Creating a budget and sticking to it is always a major New Year's resolution for business owners. However, we all know that resolutions are hard to keep and can often get broken. Luckily, meeting your money-saving resolution is easier when there's a place you can buy office essentials for just $1.

With a little help from Dollar Tree, here are four ways you can reach your business budgeting goals for 2021.

1. Stay on schedule in 2021! Use calendars and planners to help you get organized and stay on track so you can meet all of your important deadlines. From wall calendars and desktop calendars to pocket calendars, choose the ones that work best for your planning needs. 

2.  No matter what type of business you're in,  personalization is key. Create loyal relationships with your customers or clients by showing small tokens of gratitude and appreciate throughout the year. An easy way to do this is to send personal greeting cards on special occasions. Receiving a hand-written birthday message makes people feel special, and it will definitely make your business stand out.

Happy New Year! 2021!

It has been one heck of a  year! Between the pandemic, social distancing Amazon, Uber, Groceries and total strangers knocking on your door and a new strain of the COVID-19...I was honestly ready to say good riddance. But I digress. 

I hope that you are mentally strong for what is to come for 2021. We still have to get over 20 million people vaccinated and we have only done about 2 million. Worst yet, I heard it through the grapevine that if we stay at this pace, it will take us another 10 years to get everyone vaccinated....TEN YEARS!!!! 

My hope and prayer is that this nightmare will be over soon because we are tired(at least I am) of all the mess. So many people have been touched by all that has gone on since the pandemic hit our world. I will continue to power on and advocate for my family, my autistic son, my adult daughter and hopefully my sanity. I don't think I have done this much yoga since my son was very little, but am so glad that I re-discovered its benefits to keep me sane, limber and overall relaxed, in the midst of it all. 

Make 2021 a year that you triumph and hit every goal for all your New Year Aspirations. We are all in this together and counting...

Until next time, keep it real and stay positive.
