We've very excited to announce our newest site, SparkSavings.com
. At SparkSavings we have modified the goal setting and achievement approach from SparkPeople to help members with personal finance and savings goals!
At SparkSavings you can:
- Create and maintain a monthly budget
- Track your daily expenses to measure against your budget
- Set savings goals and track your savings
- Get great personal finance articles and calculators
- Interact on message boards and Teams dedicated to personal finance
We launched SparkSavings for a few reasons. The first is that many members have identified money as a reason for causing emotional eating and other issues with their healthy lifestyle program. Another is that we know that when you set and achieve goals in one area of your life, like health, you are more likely to set and reach goals in other areas. This "criss-cross effect" can help in many ways, including saving so you can spend your money on what makes you happiest!
Since we feel SparkSavings can help all our members in one way or another we are giving 25 SparkPoints for checking the site out. Just visit SparkSavings and fill out your monthly budget to get your points. This new SparkPoints task is listed at the bottom of the "One Time Challenges" section of SparkPoints. As with our other sites such as dailySpark and SparkRecipes you can use your same SparkPeople.com login at SparkSavings.
Finally, if you have any questions or suggestions for SparkSavings we suggest you visit and post to the Site/Technical Help Forum
