Bouncing Checks

Be sure and check with your bank about over-draft protection for bouncing checks. Bouncing a check happens to everyone- eventually, and it is expensive. My bank gives it to you for free- but you have to ask for it.

Saving Money


Start Small

Did you make any New Year's resolutions this year about your money? Have you forgotten them already? Do not forget or discount the power of habits. If you want to do something, but feel overwhelmed, just do a little of it and establish a habit. If you want to save money, but have very little to save, start small. Then when you have more money, it will be much easier for you to put more away.

Saving Money


Here's a trick that many people use to save money. When you go shopping, never spend your change. Bring it home, and put it aside, either in a jar or piggy bank. You will be surprised how fast you will accumulate an sizeable amount of money. This tip has been around a long time. I find it ironic that now one major bank is basically doing the same thing when you use your debit card.
