You can’t save money regularly?
People are proving everyday that you can save if you commit to the idea and focus on goal setting and building over the long-term (not immediate gratification).
It’s not easy unless you make it your focus to get-it-done.
What if you started with our “1% Savings Plan.” It works like this:
Next paycheck – multiply the after tax amount by .01. Take the result and SAVE it in ACTUAL savings.
Paycheck after that? Multiply the after tax amount of your pay by .02. Put it in actual savings.
Each time you get paid after that, add another 1 percent until you finally reach .20. Put it in actual savings.
That’s the #1 way to boost regular savings. And it works.
Then, you are cooking. This will give you a steady way to start a real savings program and grow it to 20% savings on a regular basis without “killing your lifestyle.”
Brainstorm with your family members. Focus on goal-setting.
Focus on what you can do and see how quickly your own family members will shock you with ideas that can really add up.
It’s only simple if you start saving and you commit to regular and steady savings.
You can do this.
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. Our people have had “emergencies” all our lives. These emergencies always get in the way of saving money regularly, and our family is not different than millions of other good American families. 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 have had to learn from my own mistakes over time. 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 or allowing “it” to overwhelm you. 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”) associated with our mission!
It is our goal to encourage everyone to teach our children about money, managing money, and saving regularly (and automatically. Children should receive lessons about compound interest and steady investing for a long-term future before they face the hard choices of adult life while being subjected to the consequences of the high-speed marketing culture we live in. 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 by simply sharing with them sound saving and investing principles.
