America Saves Week

In case you hadn't heard, Saving is In! Whether you've been a big saver since the Great Depression, or it's something you've been thinking about embarking on, you might need a little help or persuasion.

America Saves Week runs from February 22 - March 1, 2009. There is a year-round site at America Saves to get lots of tips and support. You can read this post if you'd like a refresher on personal finance information. We also have hundreds of books that focus on personal savings techniques.

One quick tip to start you on the road towards your savings goal: Use the library! We have free books, DVDs, magazines, newspapers, CDs and internet access. If you'd like to see how much money you save by using library services, check out our Library Value Calculator. If you put that money in the piggy bank, you'll be well on your way to healthy savings.
