Queen of Free: Tips to boost your savings account

Whether you're stashing cash for the holidays, a vacation, or saving for college or retirement, Cherie has strategies for saving money quickly.

INDIANAPOLIS — If you’re looking to save money quickly, Cherie Lowe, the Queen of Free, shared her favorite ways to increase your savings account on 13Sunrise.

The first strategy is to get the money out of your checking account so you can't spend it.

Try to set savings goals so you can monitor what percentage you want to save.

Look for discounts on things like prescriptions and insurance bundling.

And reduce temptations for impulse buying by opting out of email subscriptions from stores' advertising sales that invite you to spend.

And when you go shopping, take just enough cash for what you plan to buy.
