America Saves Week is an annual campaign to promote fiscal responsibility and encourage savings among all Americans. Each day this week the Division of Human Resources will focus on how K-State can help you save. K-State Research and Extension provides numerous tips and resources to get you started at KansasSaves.org. Some practical, everyday savings tips are:

  • Borrow books, CDs and videos at your local library. Free eBooks are available for checkout through Sunflower eLibrary.
  • Bring your lunch to work once or twice a week instead of eating out.
  • Use coupons when shopping for groceries and more.
  • Review your telephone, cable or satellite bills for services you don’t use and cancel or change them.
