(WTNH)– If one of your resolutions is to spend less and save more, we are stretching your dollar with some ways to do that.

One of the top goals for 2018? Save money! Pay down or even pay off debt and to spend less. So here are some tips to help you do that.

First, set up an automatic savings account. So the money goes right into that account from your paycheck. That way you can’t spend it on something else.

If you can, pay more than the minimum amount on your credit cards. And if you have more than one card, pay off the balance of the card with the highest interest rate first.

To spend less, put together a budget and stick to it! To help you do that, make sure you check your statements. Then you might realize the things you’re spending the most money on.
