Save $1 Million-Take Charge America

A recent article on Yahoo! (https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/one-couple-saved-1-million-130858190.html) featured a couple who became millionaires in their early 40s and retired as the result of living a frugal lifestyle, strict saving and wise investing.  

Mike Sullivan, with nonprofit credit counseling agency Take Charge America, will offer some realistic tips on how managing our lifestyles, budget and spending habits can lead to big returns in the future. 

  •     Track expenses and create a budget this is a crucial part of any savings plan. You can't control costs and create a savings plan if you don't really know what is coming in and going out. For 30 days, track every penny, and then base your budget/savings plan according to your expenses/income. 
  •     Don't be house poor for most people, a home is your largest expense. In addition to the mortgage, the bigger the house, the more it costs to maintain. Living below your means will allot the most amount of money for savings.
  •     Identify spending triggers and enlist help we all have different triggers. Some people are impulse buyers, some people can't pass up great deals, and others buy things to relieve stress or to seek rewards. Identify your triggers, and enlist the help of family and friends to help you overcome. For instance, impulse buyers can put a note in their wallet that says "do I really need this?” Stress buyers can find alternative ways to deal with stress, like working out or meditating. 
  •     Start retirement savings as early as possible you can't beat the power of compounding interest. The sooner you start, the better off you'll be. If your company has a 401k, make sure you are contributing a minimum of the match amount. If not, you're leaving "free" money on the table. If your company doesn't offer a 401k, look into a Roth or Traditional IRA.
