Dr. Sabrina Scott provides statistics about the economic impact of gifts that are returned after the holiday season and suggests giving a gift that won’t be returned but that will truly keep on giving for generations.
DECATUR, GA, December 20, 2018: Dr. Sabrina Scott, co-founder of Red Feather Financial, has posted a new article on the firm’s website entitled “Give Yourself And Loved Ones A Gift That Won’t End Up In The Landfill,” in which Dr. Scott elaborates on the gift of financial freedom.
Dr. Scott writes, “According to an article I recently read, “Each year, consumers return about $380 billion worth of goods — $90 billion of which are processed during the holiday. 5 billion pounds of those returned items end up in the trash heap.”
As Dr. Scott points out, “We have all been the recipient of some unwanted holiday gift — you know, the ugly sweater your aunt knitted, or the pink bunny pajamas Ralphie received from his Aunt Clara in the classic holiday movie A Christmas Story.” She continues adding, “Gift givers fail to realize the economic impact of their unwanted gifts. Which leads me to suggest a different kind of gift.”
“Can you imagine the impact it could have on your life or the life of a loved one to get your financial affairs well-organized?” Scott asks. She adds, “Now, you may not be thrilled at the prospect of not having a shiny gift to unwrap under the tree this year. Getting your financial affairs in order for the long-term may not let you put many gifts under the tree this year, but down the line, due to the growing strength of your finances, that could be a very different story.”

About Dr. Sabrina Scott
Sabrina Scott learned about Veterans Benefits and Medicaid when her parents sought legal services for long-term care. Confident she could find ways to preserve her family’s resources and still get access to Government Assistance, Sabrina felt there should be more options than relying on welfare. As a result, Dr. Scott became an investment advisor representative who can make recommendations regarding securities and became licensed in insurance as well. She co-founded Red Feather Financial with Victoria Collier to help those who want to have a plan in place in order not to outlive their resources and who do not want to be a burden to their children.
