Here are eight simple ways you can start padding your emergency fund right now:

  1. Set a monthly savings goal: automate deposits for each week or month to reach it. Start small – even if it’s five percent – and build on it.
  2. Separate the “wants” from the “needs:” look carefully at where you’re spending your money.1 Scale back on any extra purchases such as unnecessary shopping, expensive coffee drinks and other non-essentials.
  3. Sell your unwanted items: purge your closet or home of things you no longer need and try selling them online or through a garage sale.
  4. Cash only policy: give yourself a weekly allowance and pay with cash only. This helps you budget more carefully instead of swiping your card and forgetting about it later.
  5. Keep the change: if you get change back, round up to the next dollar and move it into your savings. Some banks have the option to deposit $1 from your checking into your savings account for every transaction.
  6. Meal prep: there will always be good lunch deals but it’s not just the food that you’re paying for; it’s the cost of time and gas to get there. Take time to plan your meals in advance so you can eat comfortably during the week. You can also plan your meals around what’s on sale at the grocery store every week.2
  7. Use public transportation or carpool: some employers even reward employees for using alternative modes of transportation!
  8. Roll over any extra money you have at the end of the month to your savings.

It takes discipline to save rather than spend. But in the end, the benefits outweigh the cost when you see what you have. Remember: Saving even just a little bit of money for emergencies is always better than putting them on a credit card!

We love our pets, but between maintaining their good health, as well as purchasing other items to keep them happy, the bills can rack up in no time.

Taking care of them doesn’t have to break the bank, though.
Using the following tips can help you save hundreds of dollars on pet care costs:

1) Look around for low-cost vaccination clinics at local pet stores or mobile budget vets, or contact your area Humane Society or animal welfare groups.

2) You can save on emergency visits and surgical services if you live near a college that has a veterinary school. Look online to find vet schools around you.

3) Try to negotiate with your veterinarian. They may be able to offer up a payment plan that works for you.

4) Buy pet food in bulk at discount and wholesale stores.

5) Make homemade food or treats by finding a recipe on the Internet, or just stop by a butcher. Your pet will love you for it!
