What dream jobs did your parents wish for?
February: Take a survey
Ask a group of friends "What's your dream for making money when you're on your own?"
Then ask a group of parents "When you were my age, what kind of job did you dream of having?"
Tally the results. How different are the answers between the two groups?
March: Save it allSave your money in your credit union savings account.
Save every single coin you earn, find, or receive for an entire month. Invest it in your credit union savings account at the end of the month.
How much did you save? Use the Periodic Investment Calculator to determine how much money you'd have if you saved and invested that way for 10, 20, and 30 years.
April: Live without TVAsk your credit union about the Saving's Challenge!
Go without any television for a full week. Can you go longer?
This is a great resolution to share with your brothers and sisters, or even the whole family. If you can all find things to do that don't include turning on the tube, it will be that much easier.
