Here are some tips and tools to help you save money this year.
Nashville, Ark. – Many people start the New Year with a commitment to save money.
Whether you want to save $5 a week or more, there are some things you can do to help
you achieve your financial goals. Here are some tips and tools to help you save this
* Make a goal for savings. Think about what you want to save for and write it down. It could be reducing your
debt load, buying a new car or house, taking a vacation, paying for school. Having
a goal to work towards helps you stay on track.
* Plan Ahead. When you plan your budget for the month, including savings as a line item just as
you would for house payment, phone payment, etc.
* Track Everything. Tracking every cent you spend for the next few weeks can give you a clearer picture
of what you’re spending your money on. Do you see a pattern? Maybe, you are spending
your money on eating out lunch every day. It could be spending money at the vending
machine. Once you have an idea of what you’re spending, you will be able to develop
a more realistic monthly budget to keep you on track.
* Start Small. Often the start of a new year brings an onslaught of resolutions, many of which may
or may not actually stay on track by Valentine’s Day. So instead of trying to totally
revamp your financial habits all at once, take it one step at a time. Cut out one
day of spending money in at the vending machine, bring your lunch one day instead
of eating out every day, then put the money you would have spent in a savings account.
A small amount of change can add up to big savings in the end.
* Take the America Saves Pledge. America Saves is a campaign designed to encourage people to save and invest. It is
an online tool that is easy to use and it is fun! Howard County Extension Service
is making people aware of this nationwide opportunity during the month of January.
America Saves week is February 27-March 4, 2017. By taking the pledge, you will receive
savings strategies to help you achieve a financial goal in 2017. You will receive
online newsletters, text messages, Facebook messages, etc. to help get you started
on a financial goal. To take the pledge or to learn more about the program check out
the website, www.uaex.uada.edu/money .
* Commit. Make a commitment to save money, no matter how small or large. One year from now
you’ll look back and be proud of the money you have saved.
For more information on America Saves or developing a monthly budget,
contact the Howard County Extension Service at 870-845-7517. You can also visit our
office located on the second floor of the courthouse in Nashville.
