UW CES Urges Citizens to Participate in Wyoming Saves
March 26, 2009 — A University of Wyoming educator says accumulating savings and reducing debt are ideal ways to take charge of your personal finances, particularly during the United States' rough economic times.
Juliet Daniels, of the UW Cooperative Extension Service (CES), has launched a free statewide program called "Wyoming Saves," which offer tips on saving money and working to eliminate debt.
"While the federal government is doing everything it can to encourage more spending, I am here to encourage you to do more saving," says Daniels. "It matters more about forming a habit than the amount you are saving. New savers can take baby steps, even if it's saving $1 a week."
The registration deadline for the program is Wednesday, April 1. Enrollment and progress forms are available at http://wyomingmoneytalk.blogspot.com or can be requested by calling (307) 633-4383 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheyenne-Laramie County Employees, First Cheyenne, First Education, Meridian Trust, Unified People's, Warren, Western Vista and WyHy federal credit unions and Credit Unions Care (www.creditunions-care.com) support "Wyoming Saves."
