We are now starting to see some light at the end of the long pandemic tunnel.

Now, a new survey finds many people are making big post-vaccination plans.

Have you given any thought as towhat you are going to do once you receive your two vaccination shots?

A new survey says get ready for a splurge in travel and spending - at least among those who are still working.

Remember the roaring 20's?

Not that you were there. But we're taking about the parties, drinking to excess, and the world of "The Great Gatsby."

It was a reaction to the end of World War I and the Spanish Flu.

Some now predict that for 2022 if the pandemic is defeated.

A survey by Lending Tree says 80 percent of Americans plan a splurge once they are vaccinated.

That would include air travel, dining in a fine restaurant, movies and concerts.

But from the doesn't that stink file.

The millions of Americans still unemployed, who won’t be splurging.

Lending tree says 15% of people say they will not change their activities after vaccination, because they don't expect to feel financially secure.

And that stinks.

Lending Tree says that shows the big divide in America: people working remotely are making more money now that they no longer commute.

But many service workers and those laid off face a bleak year ahead.

Lending Tree says as your vaccination gets closer, try to build up a post-vaccine splurge fund.

Maybe with your tax refund or stimulus check. So you don’t waste your money.
