7 Money Saving Tips that will Also Save your Credit Score 

1. Set Up Correct Accounts

Make a money management plan starting with bank accounts for this stage in your life. Are you currently thinking about college for your children? Want to start with a simple savings plan for a summer vacation? Are you thinking long term and want to start a retirement savings? Make a realistic  plan for yourself by meeting with a bank professional to give you all of the terms and features associated with that specific banks accounts.

  • Checking account: offers easy access to your money for  daily transactions.
  • Savings account: allows you to accumulate interest on funds.
  • Certificate of Deposit: or CD allow you to invest your money at a set interest rate for a pre-set period of time.
  • Money market account: require you to maintain a higher balance to avoid a monthly fee and used as a savings account.
  • Individual Retirement Accounts: or IRAs allow you to save independently for your retirement.

2. Track Your Expenses

Keep track of every penny you are spending by collecting all receipts and bank statements. Talley daily spending with details to show your spending habits.  Make a separate log of your fixed expenses. Start curbing your spending to minimize your daily spending habits, like lunch out and frivolous trip. Review your budget monthly often to keep spending in check. 

3. Divide Your Paycheck

Divide each paycheck efficiently. Allot for fixed expenses, bills, savings, spending money and paying off debts.  

4. Watch Your Debt

Keep debt at no more than 35 percent of your gross monthly income.  You should attempt to pay off debt, by paying more than minimum amounts and focusing on debts that can be cleared.

5. Track Bank Activity 

keep a close eye on your bank account by visiting it often. Verify purchases and amounts closely to minimize discrepancies and overspending.

Set up email and text alerts and turn on autopay, to help ensure that you pay your bills on time.

7. Check Your Credit Yearly
