Boost your savings rate. Saving money can be hard, especially if you’re saving for retirement or a down payment on a home. But it’s important to keep your savings goals at the forefront of your mind. Remember to avoid savings’ withdrawals unless it’s completely necessary, and try to save more than you think you should going into the New Year.
Crack down on your spending. The key to saving more is to spend less! There are a few easy ways to curtail your spending; only go shopping when you need something, always make purchases with coupons, and give yourself a weekly/bi-weekly allowance. You should never go into debt for things you don’t absolutely need!
Optimize and consolidate your credit cards. Whether you’re trying to maximize rewards or minimize the cost of your debt, you should strongly consider consolidating your revolving credit lines into one convenient monthly payment.
