Money Saving Tips

Auto: While a sporty new car may be fun to drive, paying the insurance bill is not. Before purchasing a vehicle, consider the cost of insurance.

Consider This: While you should set long-term financial goals, don't underestimate the importance of short-term goals. Since they can be obtained sooner, they will give you the feelings of success needed to pursue and accomplish more difficult goals.

Household and Utilities: Wrap an insulating jacket or blanket around your hot water heater to keep heat from escaping.

Consider This: You cannot change your finances alone. It is a team effort involving family, friends, and mentors. Accountability is key.

Food (Grocery & Eating Out): You may be throwing away hundreds of dollars worth of food each year. Determine how much food your family is wasting, and find ways to avoid it. For example, do you often throw out food from the kids' plates that they didn't eat? Try giving them less food. You can always refill the plates once they eat the food.

 Time Saving Tips

Home: During holidays and vacations, many people resolve to ?do everything.? Don't. Overbooking yourself will make these times stressful rather than relaxing. Plan a reasonable number of activities and save some for next time.

Consider This: E-mail should be a tool, not a master. Only check it once or twice per day. If something is extremely important, the sender will find another method of contacting you.

Work: Enjoy your work. You will be more effective if you have a positive attitude. Find ways, both minor and major, to make your career more enjoyable.

Work: Evaluate the tasks you focus on in the office. Do they move you and your employer toward the company's goals? Are you spending your time doing other people's work? Is the task necessary? When possible, eliminate tasks which are unnecessary distractions.

Work: Find a job that you enjoy or one with aspects you enjoy. You will be more effective if you love what you do since you'll be less likely to procrastinate on tasks.
