Cutting Back While Moving Forward
People throughout the world were caught off-guard last year when the markets tumbled. They saw their nest eggs disappear and began to wonder how they would retire, send their kids to college or even pay their bills. This economic uncertainty has affected even those most financially secure. RubbingNickels.com, a website launched in May, provides resources to help people attain their financial goals while taking into account the new economic realities.
Co-founders, Julie Arnheim and Darcy Ratner, don’t see “gloom and doom” in these challenging times, but rather opportunities for households to re-evaluate and prioritize their monetary habits. Their mantra is that financial health is “all about having a plan and re-visiting that plan regularly.” One of their focuses is the idea that staying organized helps avoid impulsive decisions. Their informational website offers simple budget and financial goals worksheets, creative strategies to reduce costs and be organized around the house, tips for becoming “eco-thrifty,” and new “good deals” every day.
RubbingNickels.com is unique when compared to other money-saving sites in that it pays attention to both sides of the balance sheet. The site not only provides money-saving strategies but also discusses income-producing alternatives. This may mean finding a full-time position or creating a more flexible, part-time solution. The website features in-depth material for job-hunters and those considering starting a home-based business. A section called Cottage Industries highlights entrepreneurs sharing insights to the challenges faced and lessons learned as they grew their businesses.
With practical tools and money-saving tips, RubbingNickels.com, can help people cutback on their unnecessary spending in order to move forward with their short and long-term plans.
