Saving...The Time is Now!

Savings can help you achieve any financial goal. Whether it’s a comfortable retirement, a down payment for a house, or a new car or stereo, you can get there by setting money aside. And best of all, you can have what you want without getting bogged down in debt.

The Time is Now!Yet if you’re like most people, you don’t save as much as you’d like, or you don’t save at all. Americans spend more than we earn. Consider that the national personal savings rate has dipped to the lowest point since the Great Depression. Today’s high energy, home and food prices may make saving seem less possible than ever.

But the time is now. And with a little forethought and effort, saving money is not only possible, it’s easy.

July Financial Fitness Challenge

It’s a fact of financial life that if you want to borrow money, your lender will look atinformation about your credit habits before deciding how to price the loan.

If you’re a good risk, you won’t have to pay as much interest for the privilege of borrowing. If you’ve been a credit screw-up, expect a lender to charge you more. That’s only fair, not only to the lender but to other borrowers the lender serves. It wouldn’t be right to expect responsible borrowers to subsidize careless borrowers.

This is where your credit score comes in. It’s a three-digit grade for your credit behavior to date. It changes all the time, based on your improving or deteriorating credit habits.

Some of the ways you can damage your credit score are pretty clear, while others might surprise you.

Learning Vacations: Travel for Your Mind

Learning VacationsWould you like to return home from your next vacation with something more than a collection of photos, souvenirs and famous place-names you can drop during dinner-party conversations?

Then you may be a prime candidate for a learning vacation. We’re not talking about days filled with dry lectures and rigid class schedules. “This isn’t regimented travel ... This is hands-on learning,” says Evelyn Kaye, author of “Travel and Learn: 1001 Vacations Around the World”. Kaye grew up in England and travels extensively worldwide from her home in Boulder, Colorado.
