KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent survey from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling and Pioneer Services, a division of MidCountry Bank, showed that three out of four service members have financial worries—and those concerns could have an impact on holiday spending.
To help service members and military families spend smart and keep within their budgets this year, Pioneer Services created HolidaySpendingPlanner.org. The free website offers customizable budgets and wish lists, a holiday spending calculator, helpful shopping links and tips, as a one-of-a-kind tool that lets individuals track their actual spending against a budget.
"As the holiday season gets started, HolidaySpendingPlanner.org can be a great resource for military families," said retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Allen Usry, National Military Relations Manager for Pioneer Services. "This free site helps users establish a budget, manage wish lists, and track spending throughout the season so they can compare it to their own personal budget."
Usry is also the author of a blog and article entitled "Make the Most out of Your Holiday Dollars" that provides some other tips and strategies to save money this holiday season.
