BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Raising a family, reigning in spending and saving for the future, that’s something many of us are trying to do right here in Alabama. But one Birmingham family has ten thousand reasons to get that combination right as they compete in the eCO Savings Race: Third Edition.
The Deal Family is one of the four teams competing in this year’s eCO Savings Race. Alex and Roni are competing to win $10,000.
Alex, a football coach, says he’s going to coach his family to the eCO savings financial health jackpot and a better life.
The family has no credit card debt and has already set aside a $1000 for an emergency fund. But they do have other debt to tackle.
Ultimately, the Deals say they just want to set good examples early for their young sons.
You can track the Deals and all the other eCO Savings Race teams here.
And be sure to vote for the team you think is making the best financial progress: here.
