Every savings account can stand a boost now and then, especially in difficult economic times. Families can increase a feeling of financial security by adding to their savings.
Money is often hard to come by. How do you find “extra” money for savings? Listed below arc some shortterm ideas to help your family add to savings:
• Stage a family fund-raising contest. Specify a short time (maybe a week or so) during which each family member will contribute to savings. The one who contributes the most wins a prize. Choose a prize without cost or you will defeat your purpose. The prize might be something like getting to pick supper menus for a week, skipping family chores or being allowed extra telephone or television time. Everyone in the family can contribute. Children can earn money by taking by taking care of neighborhood pets, doing yard work, starting a neighborhood newsletter or holding a car wash. The entire family can participate in collecting recyclable materials or contributing items to a garage sale. Children and adults can make crafts and sell them on consignment at craft shops. Short-term jobs may be available through temporary employment agencies.
• Reduce unnecessary expenses for
a limited time. For example, go without soft drinks for two weeks, contributing the amount you normally would have spent to your savings account; or cut back on entertainment costs, long-distance phone calls and hobbies for a specified time and contribute all savings to the account.
• Plan menus for a “recession week” of meals. Sec how little you can spend on meals while keeping nutritional value high. Nutritious and filling meals can be made using low cost foods such as beans, rice and seasonal vegetables. Bread can be bought at thrift stores for lower prices. Food made from scratch usually costs less than convenience foods. Shopping the sales, buying generic brands and using coupons can lower costs even more.
If done for short, specified lengths of time, these activities can be approached as family projects rather than deprivation. Meanwhile, make sure all savings are deposited in your savings accout. You will be surprised how much it grows!

If you don’t want to sweat it out this summer, there are things you can do now to help keep your cool.
