Spring Into Action to Improve Your Finances! | First Volunteer Bank

While everyone is focused on spring-cleaning, our team at First Volunteer Bank wants to suggest taking some time to look over your personal finances to see what can be improved during the rest of 2019.

Let’s take a look at some ways you can improve your finances. Start here:

Get Started Saving

If you don’t have a savings account, it is time to get one! Even if you just put in $100 at the start, you need to start establishing a strong savings account so that you are able to save for a rainy day and/or unexpected expenses like an emergency.

Plus, when you open a savings account, you are allowing your money to earn interest. Therefore, why wait to start earning interest on your savings when you could have started earning money yesterday?

Budget for Your Next Vacation

Not only do you need a break away from work to recharge your batteries, but who doesn’t want to get out of town for a week or a long weekend in the summer? We all do for the most part. However, it shouldn’t throw us into debt to do so.

Summer will be here before you know it. Therefore, it is important to start budgeting for your vacation now so that you can enjoy your break without the worry of overspending or not having enough money to take a vacation in the first place.

Plus, when you book early enough, certain places will offer a discount. It’s a win-win situation!

Buy in Bulk

While you shouldn’t buy everything in bulk, there are certain items where buying in bulk makes sense financially.

The following are items you should always consider buying in bulk:

  • Bottled water
  • Coffee
  • Diapers
  • Paper towels
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Toilet Paper
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Trash bags
