This Smithville newsletter is brought to you by the color red. In this edition, we'll cover how to stay out of the red with some financial tips, stop seeing red when you try to program your Smithville TV, and introduce the NFL RedZone.
Stay out of the Red: Financial Hacks
Track spending in order to identify areas for improvement. It is difficult to assess how to improve your money situation if you don't know how you are spending it. Tally all expenditures for several weeks to see where and how you are spending your money and then make adjustments.
Make punctual payments by creating an effective payment system or using online bill paying. See below on how to make your Smithville payment, quickly and easily, using our credit card payment systems via phone or our online bill payment process.
Order your free credit report and credit score annually to check for errors, corrections, or problems. Get in the habit of ordering your reports every year on your birthday or another significant date. You can contact Annual Credit Report for your free credit report.
Convert your normal light bulbs and appliances to energy efficiency models. Use today's home automation to automatically turn off lights, adjust thermostats, and monitor potential problems.
Add to your income through the booming gig economy. Whether freelancing on the side, selling products online, or offering services on the weekend, any additional amount of cash allows for more savings and quicker debt payment.
Use coupon codes whenever you are making online purchases. Try Retail Me Not or even searching for the company name and "coupon codes" in order to find money-saving codes.
Ask your insurance agent about home security discounts. Many insurance agencies offer a discount for a home security system and 24/7 monitoring.
Plan nutritious and affordable meals by being organized and pre-planning your meals. Consider subscribing to a comprehensive menu planning service like CookSmarts in order to improve and expand your meal choices while saving money on ingredients.
