Another Dirty Little Word: Savings

Saving money is not a matter of math. Most people will not save money when they get that next pay raise, or when the car is finally paid off. They will not follow through with their New Year’s resolutions to save. Most will not save when the kids are grown. The truth is, you will only save money when it becomes an emotional priority to YOU!

We all know that we need to be saving, but most people just don’t save like they know they need to. Why not? Usually, there are competing short term wants that get in the way. The goal to save isn’t enough of a priority in the face of ordering out for pizza, or getting the latest techno-gadget. So, we purchase and consume all of our dollars away and worse, spend money we don’t even have and go into debt.

Debt means monthly payments that control our paychecks and our future. Debt causes us to constantly be in a state of financial panic. Debt causes incredible undue stress on relationships and families.

Do you really want to continue on that road? Most people readily say that they would love it if they had 3 months, 6 months or even a year’s worth of salary as financial reserve in the bank. But few attain that worthy goal. Not because they can’t, but because they won’t make it a priority to SAVE and not overspend.

I spoke about it in my last blog post…that other Dirty Little Word called a budget. I can’t stress enough how important it is to set yourself up on a budget. It really DOES NOT MATTER how little or how much you make. When you pre-determine how you will spend your earnings by thoughtful planning, budgeting and debt elimination, you will begin to be on the road to financial well-being.
