We love the flat screen TVs and iPads. What about regular money market savings built from a percentage of each paycheck you deposit in your checking account?
We love going out to eat, but what about a regular monthly DRIP with your favorite dividend producing stock?
We like going to concerts and events and spending $14 dollars on a beer, but what about a regular contribution to a mutual fund every time you get paid?
We like to focus on how much we earn, but isn’t the real power how much of each paycheck we save?
We all love to identify with how much is in our checking account, but what if it’s true that your checking account is just a MONEY LAUNDERING ACCOUNT FOR OTHER PEOPLES’ MONEY!
People who develop a plan and stick to it become wealthy.
People who learn tricks to save more and invest regularly have more options for their family and have a potentially much easier life.
Are you ready to step up, develop your own plan and grow emergency savings? We recommend you work to build 15 to 18 months of expenses in your emergency savings fund (It’s 2010, you may need every penny).
The economy is not what it used to be. If you don’t have a plan, check out our past blog entries here and at http://www.stickyasset.com/blog or check out “How To Survive Any Financial Crisis” at http://www.MiddleClassMoney.com and pass it on to those you love and care about today.
You can take control and your savings and investments will grow faster than you think!
HELPING YOUR KIDS GET AHEAD
If you think I was born saving money, you are wrong. My own family didn’t believe in saving. They don’t believe in having a 401k. They have had “emergencies” all their lives. These emergencies always get in the way of saving money regularly. I was not brought up to save and invest regularly and I have made every mistake you can think about when it comes to money. My parents thought they were shielding me from the realities of bills and worry. In fact, they were isolating me. I learned nothing until I had made many of the mistakes they made. I have had to learn the absolute hard way how to get savings on track and make it a part of your life without killing your lifestyle. I have had to learn the hard way how companies mislead with marketing. It is my mission to share what I have learned about regularly saving with my own children and also share it with you. That’s why we have a lot of “free” (blogs like http://www.boostmywealth.wordpress.com and http://www.stickyasset.com/blog and groups on Facebook like “Coupons & Coupon Codes”)!
In this country we don’t do enough to teach our children about money, managing money, saving regularly (and automatically), compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future. As a parent, we are always concerned that they get a good education and go to a good college so they can make a lot of money or have a valued career path. The truth is that we could do our children the biggest favor and one of the best things by sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
