Earlier this year we finally closed on a brand new house. We decided it would be a good option for our family to build a house. We got to pick out the colors of the walls, the carpet, and the cabinets in the kitchen. It was a really fun experience. Every week we would drive over to our house as it was being built and we would take pictures of the progress and talk about what it would be like to host people in our homes for the holidays and talk about all the kids playing together.
We have lived here for several months and it has been everything we wanted and more. Our kids have friends all over the neighborhood and we have established new friendships with our neighbors.
We were able to purchase a new home because we made the commitment to make sacrifices and save money so that our dream could become a reality. We knew that this would also be a great opportunity to show our kids that people that establish a good savings foundation today can increase their likelihood of future financial health.
Owning a home is important for our family as well as having a cushion in our savings account for emergencies. We are making better financial choices, like making meal plans instead of eating out and renting movies instead of taking the whole family to the theater so we can accomplish our financial goals.
What are you saving for? Would you like to buy a home, take a family vacation, start an emergency fund, or something else? One way to kick start your fund could be a year-end work bonus or income tax refund. It’s a great way to motivate you to save more.
If you are looking for some guidance, TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank, can provide expert advice about the advantages of a savings account, as well as products and services to help you achieve all your financial goals.
When you finally get to enjoy the thing that you saved and sacrificed for it feels so good. That moment when they hand you the keys to your new home or you look at your family on the airplane as you set off for some time together – it’s worth it. And sometimes we need some help making the right choices to get there.
