Though we’re only two days into 2012 it’s smart to get started on keeping your New Year’s resolutions. For roughly the entire month longisland.com will be helping you make progress and stay on track along the way. The first resolution we’ll be covering, one of the most popular, is saving money. This seems to be an area of difficulty for most and understandably so. It’s hard not to want the newest electronic toys that our friends have just purchased or to practice retail therapy but in the end it’s best to keep things in perspective and prioritize. What is it that you really want? A new car? A home to call your own? Are you drowning in debt? If so, then NOW is the time to start saving and here’s how.

Put your money into a savings account at any of the following banks and don’t touch it! Use direct deposit if that’s an available option so the cash never sees your hands and instead accrues interest over time.
