April 28, 2015: Savings Accountability
Do you have savings accountability? If not, you’ll know why you need to after the next 60 seconds…
Just like losing weight, saving money becomes much easier and much more effective when you have accountability.
This can happen in a couple ways:
First of all, you HAVE to set up a separate savings account where you’re putting money into, but not taking it out of.
Second, consider multiple savings accounts, such as one for an emergency fund, one for home repairs and even one for a vacation, making your savings goals much clearer.
Finally, enlist someone you love to help you stay on track, preferrably your spouse!
Don’t look at savings accountability as a set of rules to follow; instead, consider it a tangible way to make it easier to achieve your dreams
