LOS ANGELES – January 27, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

iQuanti: Saving more money is a common New Year’s resolution. But many people who express a desire to save more may not know good ways to do so. Luckily, saving money can be easy if you just change your habits. Here are 5 ways to save money for the New Year:

1. Pay yourself first.

Have you ever noticed that when you wait until the end of the month to save, there seems to be nothing left in your bank account? Paying yourself first means taking money out of your paycheck and setting it aside for savings. Then what’s left is yours to spend. This approach gives you peace of mind that you can add to your savings no matter what happens during the month.

2. Reduce subscriptions.

Many families take pride in lowering their cable bill by switching to streaming services. But the financial reality is that having too many streaming services or other monthly subscriptions can cost just as much, if not more.

If you know you’ve gone subscription crazy, create a list of all current monthly subscription services, TV or otherwise. Then prioritize based on which ones you actually use. Be ruthless when reducing. Then, transfer the saved money directly to your savings account.

3. Increase contributions to tax-advantaged savings accounts.

Savings that go into a tax-advantaged account, like a company-sponsored 401(k) plan, may actually benefit you more than savings that go into a regular savings account. If you’re not already doing so, make sure you contribute enough to your company’s pension plan to get the match from your employer.

If you already contribute to a tax-advantaged savings account, commit to saving an additional 1% this year. Then, next year, do it again. These small savings will accumulate over time and allow you to have a successful retirement later in life.

4. Put credit card rewards directly into savings.

Many credit cards now offer rewards points in one form or another. If you used a cashback credit card to earn rewards, start funneling that money straight into savings. At the end of each month, choose to send those savings directly to the bank instead of spending them on gift cards or statement credit.

5. Think about apps that help you save money automatically.

Money-saving apps like Digit or Acorns can help you save a few dollars a week without you realizing it. Just setting aside $5 a day every working day can lead to huge savings. Over a year, just an extra $25 each week can add up to $1,300. Then, at the end of the year, you can use those savings to accumulate and reach your savings goals.

Alternatives to consider if you need cash fast

Saving money takes consistency, and it takes a little time. But if you need quick access to cash, whether it’s to cover bills or a sudden emergency, there are loan options to consider. For example, if you have a steady income, you might want to consider a cash advance that you can repay with an upcoming paycheck. Then, once you’ve paid off the loan, you can kick into savings mode.

Installment loans and lines of credit are two other loan options to consider. These options can be better than cash advances when you need access to more cash. An installment loan, like a personal loan, can be a low-interest loan option with predictable monthly payments. And a line of credit can give you continued access to money up to your credit limit.

If you are unsure which loan option is best for you, research the most reputable lenders, eligibility criteria, and interest rates. Then choose the loan that can get you the amount you need with the loan terms that suit your situation.

The bottom line

The New Year is the perfect time to start fresh and resolve to save more money. Making small changes like paying yourself first, reducing subscriptions, increasing pension contributions, sending credit card rewards to savings, and using automatic savings apps can all help you reach your savings goals. faster. But if you still need money now, considering loan options like cash advances, installment loans, or lines of credit might be a smart move.

A watercolor by Paul Cezanne is among the recent acquisitions of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

“Sentier dans les bois” represents a forest path at Jas de Bouffan, an estate inherited by Cézanne from his father.

According to a CMA press release, “(Cézanne) used selective strokes of watercolor from a limited palette to suggest light and shadow, and allowed graphite work in combination with the whiteness of the paper. to build the image. The result is a seemingly unfinished work that was in fact carefully rendered through a process that allowed no revision.

The museum has three paintings and several drawings and etchings by the post-impressionist artist, this is Cézanne’s first watercolor in its collection, and it will be included in the exhibition and publication “Nineteenth-Century French Drawings at the Cleveland Museum of Art,” which opens today and will be on display through April 30, 2023.

Other additions to the permanent collection include: ‘Standing Broken Men’, a multimedia work by Rashid Johnson and three sculptures from Melvin Edwards’ ‘Lynch Fragments’ series. Both build on the CMA’s commitment to diversifying its collections.

With a fractured figure staring wide-eyed at the center of a frenzied mosaic, “Standing Broken Men” can be interpreted as “a poignant reflection on the time it was made, defined by a global pandemic and heightened concern racial inequalities,” according to the museum.

“Long Term”, “A Lusaka” and “Miliki” are part of the ongoing series, “Lynch Fragments”, which Edwards began in 1963. The title of the series reflects Edwards’ desire to encourage taking into account the violence and destruction caused by racism in and beyond American society.

The Illinois State Museum (ISM) is announcing its Route 66 collection initiative which focuses on expanding the museum’s collections of related historical objects for an exhibit to open in 2026 celebrating Mother Road’s 100th anniversary.

The museum is looking for artifacts that help illuminate the history of Route 66, both during its glory days before the interstate system, and artifacts from those who continue to add to its history today.

Bob Waldmire’s family donated a large collection of his art and personal effects to the Illinois State Museum to lay the foundation for the collection initiative.

“Bob represented a sense of freedom and a carefree attitude towards people who were more entangled in a routine,” his brother, Edwin “Buz” Waldmire, said in a press release.

Perhaps there is no one more iconic to Route 66 than traveling artist and nomadic peace activist Bob Waldmire. Throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, Waldmire traveled from city to city along Route 66, creating and selling artwork and postcards. Then, in 1985, he bought a 1972 Volkswagen camper van he lived in Arizona (this van later inspired the character of Fillmore in the Disney-Pixar movie “Cars.”)

The objects donated to the museum are a testament to Bob’s prolific output as an artist and his nomadic and free-spirited lifestyle. This gift includes original drawings, paintings, prints, postcards and a manual typewriter on which Bob has composed his newsletters and correspondence. Additionally, the donation includes a pair of patched cut-off shorts he wore while traveling on Route 66, a roadside display to sell postcards, and the hood of his 1965 Mustang, hand painted with a Route 66 map.

“It is an honor for the museum to receive this gift of art and artifacts from Bob Waldmire,” said Erika Holst, curator of history at the Illinois State Museum. “No one has symbolized the freedom and opportunity of Mother Road better than Bob Waldmire.”

Those interested in contributing to the ISM Route 66 collecting initiative can find out more about the items the Museum wishes to add to its collection here.

Robert Gentile, a mobster who for years denied authorities’ suspicions that he knew anything about a multi-million dollar treasure trove of art that was stolen in a museum heist in 1990 and who is still missing, is deceased. He was 85 years old.

His lawyer, Ryan McGuigan, said Gentile died on September 17 from a stroke.

Investigators suspected Gentile of having had in his possession at least some of the works of art taken in March 1990 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston.

In this theft, two men showed up at the museum overnight dressed as police officers. They held back the security guards and left soon after with 13 pieces from the collection, including works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Degas. Art has never been found.

Gentile, who had an extensive criminal record and served a prison sentence, was suspected of having ties to people suspected of having recovered the art after it was stolen, but denied ever having had any of the works. .

“I had nothing to do with the paintings. It’s a big joke, ”Gentile said in a 2019 telephone interview with The Associated Press after his release from prison.

The authorities did not think so. They said the widow of another gangster said her husband gave Gentile two of the paintings and that Gentile spoke about the stolen labor in prison.

One of the deceased Nintendo factories can be turned into the world’s first museum for the games company.

Nintendo, one of the world’s leading electronics and video game companies, has released a declaration share his project for the museum. The press release stated that the Uji Ogura The Kyoto factory will be transformed into a gallery to exhibit Nintendo’s many products over the years. It will be the first museum of its kind devoted entirely to the history and philosophy of Nintendo. Although not explicitly mentioned, the statement suggests that the city administration agrees with the plan.

Nintendo was first created in 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi as a manufacturer of playing cards. However, the Japanese company has found real success as a video game maker. The company was one of the first to create video games. Some of the most iconic games like Mario, Pokemon, and Legend of Zelda were created by them. The company has also ventured into gaming consoles since the 1970s, with products like Wii and Switch becoming popular among consumers.

Animal Crossing: New Horizon, Nintendo’s latest game

In 2020, Nintendo was the richest company in Japan. The company released Animal crossing: new horizons early 2020, which saw massive success during the pandemic. Playing cards like Pokemon also found new interest during the lockdown, while older cards were auctioned off.

The Uji Ogura Plant, simply called “Uji Plant”, is a former Nintendo factory located in Kyoto. It was built in 1969 and initially made playing cards. He also produced hanafuda cards, a popular card game traditionally played in Japan but also in some other Southeast Asian countries. The factory was released in 2016 after opening a new factory in Uji.

The museum is slated to open in 2024 and is said to contain products of the company over the years, including rare artifacts.
