Introducing SparkSavings.com


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, March 22, 2010



Hi everyone

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 at SparkSavings.

    I have read several comments about how someone Googled certain topics and all of a sudden SparkPeople pull it off. My story has the same beginning when I Googled "how many Calories should I eat to loose weight" and that is when I discovered and was led to Spark. So I definitely know someone is watching over us and leading us to a Spark Place that truly cares and understands what we all are going through.
Great work and thank you for all you have given us! It's people like you that make this world a better place.

    Seeing the numbers it really makes it sink in that I need to find a different job. I have 15 left every month!!! emoticon I thought a couple of hundreds! emoticon So please let nothing go wrong. The house is the most expensive yes but I wouldn't be able to leave it. I like it. I need the space, I would even like to have a bigger house. Well anyway thanks for the eyeopener.
