This is one of the most important things I’ll ever post.
Don’t like what’s happening in America’s financial markets? Don’t like what’s happening in your bank account?
Do you want to do something about it?
If so, here’s what you do:
We, The Savers, from ING Direct, is a 10-point list of the things you can do individually or as a family to improve your finances, regardless of what’s happening above and around you. As ING points out:
"If you live by it, you’ll be in control of your financial life. If everybody lives by it, we’ll live in a stronger nation. We urge every American family to read it, talk about it together, commit to it. Then print it out and tape it to your refrigerator door. It’s a declaration of financial independence that will put your future into your own hands, where it was always meant to be"
You can be stronger than any fear about the economy – if you decide to be. And then take these steps, as applicable to your life, to improve your budget, your pocketbook, whatever.
