If you’ve ever felt that you weren’t in control of your finances, you are not alone!  Whether you are dealing with unexpected emergency expenses, a job loss, or just your average monthly bills and family essentials, it can be a struggle to keep up and control keep in control of your financial situation.

If you have financial difficulties or struggle with budgeting for your family, Kmart is here to help with their new Share the Word Financial Empowerment Platform.  The platform was created in honor of Black History Month, and it was created in order to provide valuable resources to help Kmart customers.

For this program Kmart has teamed up with Glinda Bridgforth.  She is the author of Girl, Get Your Money Straight! and the program is offering a free dowloadable family finance e-guide, created by Bridgforth.  Within th guide you will find family budget and savings advice, as well as money saving tips and usefu templates.

Do you have any finacial tips of your own?  

If I had to give a few financial tips, I would tell people to set aside a little money each week for an emergency fund.

Also, examine your current spending and try to find where you can make cuts.  (This could entail anything from cancelling a few movie channels, swapping to a cheaper cell phone service, or just swapping out a few name brand products for generic ones.)

I also like to make shopping lists and a shopping budget, and I try my best to stick to the list, and avoid impulse purchases as much as possible.  This takes a lot of discipline, but it can really help you to stay within your budget.

For more financial tips, I encourage you to check out the Share the Word platform on Kmart.com.
