New Year Resolution #2: Spend Less/Save More

What New Years resolution list is without some kind of budgeting goal? Whether your resolution is to spend less on things you don’t really need or to save money for something special or to pay off credit cards or student loans, finances are a key part of our day-to-day living.

Families especially have unique needs when it comes to budgeting and building out long-term finance plans. The list of expenses for growing families is never ending and it’s important to be conscious of money coming in and going out.

Recognizing both the needs that families have to stay on or create budgets, as well as reaching 2017 finance goals, Kidding Around Greenville has an entire section on budgeting alone!

We’ve even partnered with Parent Financial, who has been a wonderful resource to our readers and their families when it comes to planning for insurance, college savings, everyday goals, and saving for that special family vacation.

Spend Less but Still Go Shopping

The more I shop at consignment stores in the Greenville area, the less and less I buy new clothes – the consignment shops around here are that good. It makes me so very happy to pay so little for nearly new (I recently bought a dress with the tag still attached for about $7 at a consignment store. The tag price was $124) or gently used clothing for my entire family. We’ve compiled both children’s and women’s consignment stores below but don’t forget about thrift shops either for menswear, furniture, and toys.
