When you are struggling to save money, it can seem like you will never be able to save up enough to buy even little things, much less the larger priced wants and needs.
But when you sit down with your finances, there are easier ways to save up money for that brand new television or a new bike for your son.
First, shop around to get a good idea of the price of what it is you want to save for. Your next step is to break it down in terms of a monthly payment. If you saved $25 each month, you would have saved enough to purchase a $250 TV in only six months.
You can also adjust the amount you save, and the duration over which you save it. Maybe $15 over 12 months is better for you, or maybe you can afford to set aside $50 for four months.
Think about what you can save and with a commitment and will power, you will be able to afford your big ticket item before you know it, without going into debt.
