CBFS Fall 2021 Magazine

Fall 2021 – What’s Inside:

Autumn is a time when we pause and reap the fruits of our labor. In this edition, we welcome fall with open arms. Whether you prefer drinking a mug of hot cider or eating an apple fresh off the tree, we’ll explore the history of America’s most beloved fruit in “All About Apples.”

We’ll also be exploring some of autumn’s more unusual traditions and how they’ve permeated our fall celebrations in “Autumnal Oddities.” In “Retire Well or Save
for College?,” you’ll learn how to prioritize financial goals and how you can create strategies to pursue two different goals with one source of funds. If you’re wrestling
with whether you should fund your retirement over a loved one’s education, then this article is for you.

As the country and the world begin to reopen, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is just beginning to be understood. In “Monumental Impact,” we’ll explore
the disproportionate effects of the pandemic on women—and some of the surprising good news as well.

Spring 2021 Magazine Issue

Spring 2021 – What’s Inside:

In this time of renewal, it makes sense to give yourself room to grow by casting aside the things you no longer need. In that spirit, “Declutter Your Documents” can help you decide what to keep, and what to send on a blind date with your paper shredder. Also, be on the lookout after April 15th for CBFS’s Spring Document Shredding event to further help you through the process.

It turns out, you can’t make an omelet without breaking open your nest egg. Shifting retirement savings into retirement income is tricky. If you’re nearing retirement or already there, “Make Your Money Work for You” provides food for thought as you consider how to fund your golden years.

As spring approaches, “Seedling Today, Garden Tomorrow” can help make your green thumb greener. And for another green twist, check out “A Matcha Made in Heaven” to learn about the tea that’s making a splash around the globe while touting impressive benefits.
