Savers with a plan can be over twice as likely to save successfully. K-State Research and Extension family resource management specialist Elizabeth Kiss says one of the principles of America Saves and Kansas Saves is that when the plan is written down and shared with others, we are more likely to continue to work toward that goal and to have better success achieving it. America Saves Week, which begins February 26th and runs through March 3rd, will use daily savings themes to focus on increasing savings, reducing debt, and developing habits that lead to a strong financial future.

Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
