Jorge has always tried to save a little extra money for emergencies, and unexpected expenses.  This tax season, he was encouraged to save part of his tax return to help fund his two major goals: he wants to finish his car payments as soon as possible, and eventually save up enough money to purchase his own house.

Though Jorge is proud of his savings mentality, it hasn’t always been easy for him to save, for the same reasons that it’s difficult for all of us. “I think saving money is difficult not only because of all the bills people have to pay, but because they spend money on things they don’t need!”  Jorge would tell someone who is struggling with saving that using SaveYourRefund is a great way to get started.  “It has definitely worked for me!”

Jorge is from Calistoga, California, and got his taxes filed at UpValley Family Centers of Napa Valley.
