Hi,

 

I'm a mothering.com member for many years - a mother of 1 (5 years old) and TTC now for 3 more years.

 

I'm also a part-time graduate student, studying savings and financial literacy.

 

I'm doing a savings study as part of my graduate thesis and am looking for people who would like to participate. The savings study is approved by the University of Central Florida Institutional Review Board - and has 3 parts:

 

1. Pre-study survey

2. Set a savings goal through a website or app (if you have an Android phone) - receive prompts for 4 weeks via text message related to your goal

3. Post-study survey

 

It shouldn't take up too much time and is only designed for people who want to save or are currently setting savings goals and want help (reminders, etc).

 

I need to sign up an additional 10 more people for my study results to be considered valid. Please sign-up if you'd like to participate. Thanks! Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

It would be nice if you'd post the results of your study when you conclude it. :)

I will be happy to post the results! Thanks for the suggestion. The study will start on Friday, so there is still a chance for a few more people to sign-up. Actually, I need 6 more people in order to have enough to make my study worthy of publication.  Anyone else want to participate? It's a great way to get in touch with your "savings side."

 

Here is the link to register and thanks!
