Happy New Year! We're excited to kick off another year with our members at Taconnet Federal Credit Union. If you're like us, and looking to save money in creative ways, we encourage you to check out our 2017 savings challenge. It's an easy way to save yourself an extra $1,378 by the end of the year. Now, you could do this challenge several different ways, but we wanted to make it as easy on your as possible so we've created a sheet for you to use! We set up the challenge so the big savings is at the beginning of the year, and it gets less and less as the weeks go on (first month you'll save $202, but by the last month, you'll only put away $10). By the time you reach the end of the year, you'll have saved up $1,378! Think that it will be too hard to save $202 in January? Never fear! Simply reverse the challenge and work backwards! You'll still end up with the same amount at the end of the year. You'll just be saving less now, and more as the months pass.
We've seen our fair share of savings challenges, but we think this one works well, no matter where your financial situation falls. We hope you give it a try in 2017!
