Saving money is a family affair

Good Hump Day, hope the week is moving along nicely. Now you know it would not take long in the new month for me to give a few words on budgeting & savings. It's just May 2nd and we're gearing up to pay some bills, right. Many have probably started paying them online which is good, save a stamp and drive to the post office. Put a little extra on that credit card bill.

Don't underestimate the $5 to $10 dollars towards the savings each month. You won't believe how that amount will grow left untouched. As summer vacation plans begin, the money saved will help gas up the car, buy food, and souvenirs from the trip. Encourage the family to save their money from chores, cutting lawns or dog walking gigs. Learning early to budget and save money is a family affair where everyone shares ideas on just how to accomplish these goals.
