one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions involve increasing the savings amount
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 16, 2015
Debt Consolidation USA shared in a recently published article some of the best saving goals consumers can make for the year 2015. The article titled “5 Saving Goals To Start This Year” lays out some of the most consumer friendly saving targets that people can lay out to start the year right.
The article starts off by explaining that one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions involve increasing the savings amount. It is along the lines of paying off debts or buying something important. But sadly, not everyone is successful in following their resolutions. In most cases, people start working on their saving goals – only to fail after a few weeks or months.
For consumers that are still undecided on pinning down some financial goals, the article points out that putting together an emergency fund should be on top of the priority list. This is a great savings goal to help prevent consumers from getting further into debt especially when they come face to face with financial struggles.
The way it works is that the emergency fund can be used to cover the expense items on a budget when the income suddenly stops. This happens when the consumer gets fired or decided to pursue a different career. Depending on the amount of the emergency fund, it can cover payments for a few months until a steady source of income comes back.
The article also points out that starting to build the retirement fund can help consumers with their retirement goals. The earlier the retirement fund build up, the more proactive it can be because of compound interest. This is the reason why a lot of people are maxing out their 401(k) as much as they every year.
Maintenance and repair funds are also a great idea to target for the year. This is to be proactive with the maintenance of the cars and even home equipments but being prepared for any repairs that may be needed.
