What’sYour New Year’s Resolution?

By Peggy Jo Goodfellow, Arizona Farm Bureau: Each year we say we’ll start doing this, or stop doing that. But more often than not our big plans get dashed sometime in January. Since the holiday season is a time to overeat and indulge, losing weight is a favorite for many resolution makers. A second favorite is to travel more.  It’s natural to want to get out and see more of the world, especially if you feel stuck in your rut or you haven’t been anywhere lately. Third is to be able to save money toward a new house, travel or a college fund.

Go to Arizona Farm Bureau's web page, www.azfb.org, then select "Member Benefits" to check out all our member benefits available to you. We host local and statewide benefits for a total of more than 150 various types of benefits!

For Arizona Farm Bureau members a resolution to saving money is easy, once they resolve to use more of their member benefits in 2016. By using discounted benefits, members will not only pay themselves back for the cost of dues, but you will save on the things you use everyday. These benefits mean real savings to you and your family…if you use them.
