It's the first week of February, so how are you doing with your New Year's resolutions?

A survey from RetailMeNot.com found that if you're just now getting around to making them,
You're not alone.

"We found that half of the people surveyed are still making new years resolutions," says RetailMeNot senior editor Trae Bodge.

The survey found 49% have resolved to lose weight, while 51% are trying to save more money.

"Fitness and weight loss are really big focuses for people this year, and technology reigns supreme for sure this year. From younger to older, people are really interested in pursuing their weight loss goals, either on line or via app," Bodge says. "In our poll, we found that 93% of people intend to use coupons or promotional codes this year and that was up from 53% from last year."

And with as many as 50% of people breaking those resolutions by Valentine's Day, finding something that works is the key to any success.
