When it comes to big goals, think small

You probably find that saving for a big goal, such as a car, a down payment on a house, or a vacation, can be overwhelming. It’s hard to convince yourself it’s worth missing a fun night out now in order to save for an expensive purchase that won’t happen for a year or more.

A good trick is to break down big goals into smaller and more immediate goals, like tucking away $50 this week. Keep it up, and in a year’s time you’ll have saved $2,600 towards your bigger goal!
