Start Saving Now for Next Year’s Vacation
It’s summer, and we all know what that means – Beach, BBQ and Vacations! For some this means digging for loose change in the couch cushions to fund a fantastic summer getaway! If only that loose change could even get you to the end of the block. It takes money to have a great getaway and we know how hard it is to save our hard-earned dollars.
If you’re still paying for a vacation long after your return home, then there’s a problem! No worries, we’re here to help you out with a few steps to get you on the right track, listen up.
Step 1: fill out an expense worksheet! Track exactly where your dollars go over a month and you’re bound to find financial waste. I guarantee some numbers will shock you! Be honest when filling it out – are those lattes as cheap as you thought they were?
Next Step: set up a savings or wish account at BrightStar CU and start depositing $50- $75 every payday. Saving is tough, but we have to start somewhere.
