2018 is quickly approaching, and a common New Year's resolution for many people is getting, making, or saving more money.

More than 62% of the country was stressing about money in 2017, according to a study by the American Psychological Association.

Yet another study shows only a quarter of Americans include financial planning in their New Year's resolutions.

After the holiday spending it is important to start saving immediately.

One consumer expert says paying off credit card debt should be top priority and the most important thing is to have a plan.

Only 8% will achieve their goal of saving more money, according to the University of Scranton.

Start off by saving a little here and a little there.

If you get a holiday bonus - you might want to save it for emergency use.
