Five tips to help you towards your savings goal for 2022.
Nashville, Ark. – As 2021 comes to an end, you may want to take a few minutes and
evaluate the progress you have made towards your savings goal, set some new ones for
2022, and see if there are some additional savings you can make. Here are five end
of year savings tips to consider:
There are many ways to save money and reduce your debt, even in a financially challenging
year. American Saves is a non-profit campaign from the Consumer Federation of America
that motivates, encourages, and supports low-to-moderate-income households to save
money, reduce debt, and build wealth. The research-based campaign uses the principles
of behavior economics and social marketing to change behavior. You can check them
out at americasaves.org and take a pledge to save in 2022.
The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture has several publications
that are free of charge to help consumers save money. You can check out our fact sheets
My wish for you in 2022 is to have a healthy and happy new year! If you have questions
about saving money, retirement, or any financial issue, contact the Howard County
Extension Service at 870-845-7517.
