Fru-Gal Column October 14

The holidays will be here before we know it. This is a time for reality about your finances. I listen to many people tell me that they are living check by check but then they go out and buy their child or there selves something extravagant. We have to ask ourselves did we help push this country into a recession. Start by being personally responsible for yourself. Ask yourself “Do I really need this?” Not understanding the difference between a need and a want or splurging can put you in financial trouble. I say every year that a gift from the heart is far more valuable than expensive gift from the store. The United States government has a website dedicated to teaching all Americans the basics about financial education. It will help you design a spending plan, help manage your debt and credit plus much more. They also have set up a toll-free hotline, (888) 696-6639 which you can use to order a packet of information with financial tips.
Compute the real cost of buying presents on your credit card. If you are a minimum amount due type payer, you end up shelling out 68% more for an item when you buy it on a credit card. This means that great deal of 50% off is no bargain if you cannot pay with cash. Add up to 70% to your purchase price of something about to go on plastic it is surprising how that stops you from making an unnecessary purchase.
Now let’s think why you are actually buying the item. Did you have a bad day? Did it trigger a nostalgic memory? Consumers aren’t aware of the underlying psychology that drives them to buy. Stop your emotional spending. Think before you buy.
Take care of what you do own. The National Association of Realtors wants to help you become an expert in areas like home improvement, maintenance, taxes, finance and insurance. Learn how to protect and increase the value of your home by becoming a more confident homeowner.
For savings on maintaining your car Quaker State oil is giving you a $5 rebate if you buy 5 bottles of Quaker Motor Oil or $5 rebate on a Quaker State Oil Change. Sign up for their oil change reminder program now and get a certificate for up to $20 off your second Quaker State oil change.
Stop and make a list of whom you are buying gifts for this holiday season. Sears and Kmart offer a layaway program where you go online locate the layaway icon on your products and select layaway at checkout. Make payments online over a 8 week period for all your layaway contracts. Pick up at the layaway location you selected at checkout.
