Now to our "Gma" cover story. That's why we love her. The kind of new year's resolution on everyone's mind saving money and January is the time to do it. Becky Worley is back joining us from San Francisco with all of the secrets to saving in 2018. Happy almost new year to you, Becky. So the key -- We're almost there.

You can find some of the other great items they have to offer, so check it out. A little glam for your new year's. Especially if we get our mini limo.
