5 WAYS TO SAVE MORE

These simple strategies can help you get the ball rolling, no matter what your financial goals are.

SAVE THE CHANGE

Pay cash for your everyday purchases and save your change. Every little bit adds up. Challenge yourself to see how fast you can fill a savings jar.

 

SAVE $1 BILLS

Every time a $1 bill comes into your possession, save it. You probably won't even feel the loss and won't notice the small amounts but they can really add up over time.

 

SAVE $5 BILLS

This one is more challenging than saving change, but will make a huge difference over time and will help you knock out your savings goals.

 

SET IT AND FORGET IT

Set up automatic deposits and use your online banking to automatically transfer a set amount from your checking account to a savings and leave the money alone.

 

PAY YOURSELF FIRST

You can start at any number but try paying yourself 10% of your check before you pay your bills. When you take the money off the top right away, you dont realize it's gone. You will learn to live on less when you make less available to yourelf and that 10% adds up over time.
