Success in the New Year {Family Money Minute}

December 31,2015: Success in the New Year Before you get ready to ring in the new year, why not take a little bit of time to set yourself up for success in 2015? This is the perfect time to begin the new year on the right fiscal foot. This can look like: *Setting up and agreeing upon a simple budget to try out for January. *Figuring out how to keep track of your receipts and track spending habits. *Planning to meet as a couple or a family once a week to assess your progress from the prior week. *Using an app like Manila or Mint to not only track your spending but keep all of your bills in one place. Remember you want to make your money work for you, not the other way around. Happy New Year! *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

OTC Savings {Family Money Minute Radio}

December 30,2015: OTC Savings I’ve told you before that I don’t turn to medicine as my first resort when I get sick, but there comes a time when we all need to go to the doctor. And on a recent trip, my doctor confirmed what I suspected for a while: many companies overcharge for brand name over-the-counter medicine. Her tip? Look to the right and find the generic and compare active ingredients. They are most likely exactly the same at a fraction of the cost. And if there are certain over-the-counter medicines that you use frequently, like for headache or allergy relief, visit a membership club like Sam’s or Costco to really amp up your savings. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Scan Statements {Family Money Minute}

December 29,2015: Scan Statements Yesterday we talked about the importance of checking your receipts. Today we want to go a step further and make sure that you review your bank and credit card statements. You never want to assume that statements are always correct. Match them up with your receipts, especially for things like restaurants where they have to go in and manually adjust the charge after a tip is added. You will also want to closely monitor your bank statements to watch for any fraudulent activity that could have happened over the holidays. The sooner you catch any mistakes, the easier they are to rectify. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Review Receipts {Family Money Minute}

December 28,2015: Review Receipts Ready to get back on track? Monday has always been my favorite day of the week for getting my finances back in order but especially this Monday after Christmas, it’s important to review all your receipts. Here are the things you want to look out for: First, make sure you were charged the right price for what you bought. Second, scan sales to see if anything has gone down in price since you purchased it. Finally, review the back of your receipts for the return policy. The last thing you want to do is get stuck with something you don’t really want to because you didn’t realize you had to return it within a certain time period. Following the steps will prevent future financial heartache. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Realistic Expectations {Family Money Minute}

December 25,2015: Realistic Expectations How can budgeting and management help you on Christmas day? Wherever you are and whoever you are celebrating Christmas with today, I pray that you manage your expectations. After all Christmas isn’t about getting, but it’s about giving. One of the main ways disappointment occurs is when our expectations exceeded the actual outcome. Just like you do with your budget, set realistic guidelines not only for yourself, but for your whole family and communicate throughout the day. Merry Christmas! *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Giving on Christmas Eve {Family Money Minute}

December 24,2015: Giving on Christmas Eve Many of us wish we could do more when it comes to giving back, but don’t always feel like we have enough money to do so. One of the best ways to give back is to donate your time, especially on Christmas Eve. This day provides the perfect opportunity where you can come together as a family to serve individuals and families less fortunate than you. Whether it’s cooking at a soup kitchen or handing out warm coats at a homeless shelter, it doesn’t take much to get out of the comfort of your home and show someone else that you care. After all, what better gift can we demonstrate to our own children as we celebrate the birth of Christ? *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Shopping After Christmas {Family Money Minute}

December 23,2015: Shopping After Christmas Should you stay in or go out? It seems ironic that after an entire day of celebrating together as a family and receiving gifts that anyone would want to go out shopping again, and yet today is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. If your family decided to just give gift cards and then let people pick out what they want, then it might be worth your while to check out the after Christmas sales. Otherwise, you’re better off staying home and just monitoring the sales to see whether or not you can find a better price that stores will match within the terms of your receipt. If you absolutely have to shop today, try to do it online and find a store that has a free return policy. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Secure Shopping {Family Money Minute}

December 22,2015: Secure Shopping There’s something you want to pay special attention to any time of the year, but even more so during a busy shopping season to help you shop with confidence… While cash can be very helpful for helping you not to overspend and stay on budget, a credit card that offers free fraud protection or even free insurance can be invaluable this time of year. You also want to make sure that any website you are shopping on and entering your credit card into is a secure site and not over public Wi-Fi. Follow these tips and you’ll be shopping with confidence not only this holiday season but the entire year through. ————— Another way to shop with confidence is to only shop establishments that have a price match or money back guarantee. That way you can rest assured knowing that you’re spending your time wisely and if you do come across the same item at a lower price, you can simply go back to them for a refund. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible ...

Saving on Family Gifts {Family Money Minute}

December 21,2015:Saving on Family Gifts Trying to shop for every relative can be overwhelming, not to mention costly, so what can you do? One way to solve this dilemma is by doing a family gift exchange. Everyone in the family puts their name in a hat (or in a virtual hat if you don’t live near each other) and each person draws another family member’s name. That way everyone is taken care of, but each person is only buying one gift. You can even set a maximum spend amount and have everyone include some of their favorite things when you share that person’s name. After all, it’s more about the joy of being together and giving, rather than receiving! *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.

Earn While You Shop {Family Money Minute}

December 18,2015: Earn While You Shop Have you ever consider that you could actually make money while shopping? While this seems too good to be true, it can in fact happen! One way is to use a credit card that pays you a percentage of cashback on any purchases you make with it. For some cards, you make money back in rewards or miles instead. We like to use our Disney visa credit card which has no annual fee but helps us pay for our Disney vacations. Another simple way is to use a cashback site like eBates that pays you a percentage of cashback simply by going through their website before shopping at your favorite stores. Whatever route you take, before you shop, make sure you are maximizing your money to the fullest. *** The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
