Small Savings Can Add Up

By Konnie M. Werner, President/CEO

I was at the grocery store the other day and noticed more shoppers were using coupons than I’ve seen in recent years. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, saving money seems to be the new buzz word and I think it’s great.

Small savings can add up. With many consumers cutting back on spending on almost everything, many retailers and restaurants are offering coupons, discounts, sales, and 2 for 1 offers to entice customers. The Sunday newspaper is well worth $2 for all the coupons that you get. The internet has lots of online offers and printable coupons too. These offers can save you a good deal of money, but only if you were planning the purchase anyway. Be sure to make informed decisions before making a purchase.

At Team One, we also have lots of ways to help you save money. In fact, with mortgage rates decreasing, many members have been able to save a lot of money by refinancing their current mortgage.

As everyone’s financial situation is unique, it is important to know your options and who you can turn to regarding questions about your finances. We at Team One hope that you’ll continue to put your trust in Team One for your financial needs.
