5 Minutes to Save – 401K Matching

I’ve been working at my current position over 3 years but it was just recently that I took advantage of free money my company provides. I know crazy right?  Well I finally signed up, it was painless enough and only to a few minutes to complete.  5% of my check goes into the retirement fund including any bonuses.  I never miss the money and it helps to build my retirement fund.  So this week, take a moment to see what retirement benefits they offer and then take the time to invest.

5 Minutes to Savings – Ebills

This year I plan on starting the year off right, don’t we all?  We start with great ideas of saving money, exercising, and eating better.  This week’s 5 minute to savings is signing up for ebills.

E-billing and automatic payment has saved me time and effort.  You know how it goes, the bills come in you set them aside with the promise that you are going to take care of it later.  The week goes by and before you realize it the due date has come and gone.

So this week we gather up all of our bills and set them up for automatic draft!
