Military Saves Week takes place February 22-27 and seeks to motivate, support, and encourage military families to save money, reduce debt, set a budget, and build wealth. The campaign slogan, Start Small. Think Big, gives you the freedom to make some seemingly small money saving decisions and be surprised at the overall outcome they can have on your budget. I took the Military Saves Week Pledge to commit to saving this year and my family’s goal is to put more money into our mortgage. The idea of starting small on a big goal helped me believe it could be possible. The thought of paying off a 30 year mortgage is daunting. When you look into the numbers and see how much of your mortgage payments are going to interest and not to your principal loan amount it is easy to feel discouraged, but I keep repeating to myself “start small-start small”.
How do you take the first step to saving? I went to some of the savviest people I know, fellow military spouses, and asked what small changes made the biggest differences in helping them save money and their answer was consistent: meal planning. Groceries are something we all consistently spend money on and by following the steps below, you can make some small changes that will result in some big savings!
Please share some of your grocery savings advice in the comments and don’t forget to take the Military Saves Week Pledge!
