To help consumers get in better financial shape in the new year, Citizens Bank is encouraging people to take time to identify their financial goals and to consider some simple but effective budgeting and savings strategies as part of an annual financial tune-up. Small changes made now can add up over time and help consumers to take control of their finances.
