Here’s an awesome piece of advice: “a penny saved is a penny earned.” Grannie was right. Saving cents not only makes sense, it takes work. And it’s not just a Monday-to-Friday commitment, either. Opportunities to save major coinage can be found on each payday, at every cash register and deep inside every pocket. Saving can happen every day. All it takes is dedication and imagination.
We already know that turning your financial goals into reality requires three things:
- Debt management
- A rock solid plan
Successful money management comes from your seamless execution of all three of those things, at the same time. Remember, achieving the goals that are really important to you is a marathon, not a mad dash. It’s also a relay, won $10 (or even $5!) at a time.
So here are a few more pieces of advice:
- Always be saving, even if you’re paying down debt at the same time.
- Save one opportunity at a time to prevent putting a huge strain on your budget.
- Create opportunities to save…here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Don’t get discouraged. Like all journeys, there may be a detour or two. The best way is to get back on the right course and keep on trucking. We all make mistakes sometimes. What we learn from them is the key.
