posted 1/9/2014 in Banking

At Lincoln Savings Bank, we know sticking to New Year’s resolutions can be tough. It can be even more difficult to change the way you think about money and approach your finances. That’s why we’re here to help you stick to your financial resolutions.
Over the course of the first quarter of this year we’re going to focus on helping you build sound financial habits. These strategies will help you spend wisely, save more, stress less and make better choices with your money. Here’s a look at the topics we’ll be covering this month:
Looking back to move ahead- the first step in your financial process takes a look back at last year. What would you have changed about how you handled money? You need to identify what you did wrong before you can make it right!
Checking account basics- an LSB checking account is the basis for your entire financial plan. We’ll discuss how to choose the right checking account and how to use it to your advantage.
Setting up your savings plan- here’s a secret: saving money doesn’t have to be hard! We’ll show you how to get the most out of your LSB savings account.
Build a budget- you have a checking account and savings account, so now what? Get some advice about building a budget that works and that’s easy to stick to.
Money wasters- these are the things that you are definitely wasting money on, probably more than you know. We’ll discuss the top offenders and show you how to eliminate them to help your budget stay on track.
It’s a new year, and as your financial partner we’re in this together. We hope you’ll stay tuned throughout the month whether you are a financial rookie or a seasoned pro. Check back later this week for the first post in your First Quarter Financial Plan!
