TIP OF THE DAY

Way back in 2015, Debt.com reported that more than a third of Americans made a New Year’s resolution to save more money — but a quarter of those knew they weren’t going to keep it.

What doomed them? Ambition. We tend to make grand New Year’s resolutions, then get discouraged when we can’t live up to those too-high expectations. The solution? Lower expectations!

When it comes to saving money, Debt.com prefers you start modestly. So every weekday this month, we’ll show you how to save in 30 seconds. Check out our videos below, which we’ll keep adding throughout the month. If you follow even some of them, you’ll notice those little savings will add up to something huge by this time next year….
