America Saves Week: Keep moving forward
America Saves Week was Feb. 22-26. However, you can keep focusing on your financial goals all year long.
The first step to saving is often budgeting. Use a budgeting template or online budgeting resource such as Mint.com or Level Money to help you get started on a budget. Every little bit counts. After you complete your budget, save any extra dollars in an interest bearing account. Compound interest can help small amounts of money grow to much more over time.
Saving for retirement or other financial goals often is about discipline and a commitment to your desired lifestyle. Once you set your budget, look for ways to generate savings in everyday expenses. Be diligent and use those small savings to help you reach your financial goals.
