Saving more money is often near the top of the New Year's resolution list. Although that's a laudable goal, it's one that many won't accomplish.

Do you want to build up an emergency fund so that even minor setbacks won't throw off your budget? Are you hoping to set aside money for a near-term objective like a summer vacation? Or are you aiming at a bigger target, like your kids' college education or your own retirement?
