The last week of February is annually designated “America Saves Week." There are numerous days, weeks and months dedicated to various groups of people and special interests each year, but a week dedicated to saving pertains to all Americans.
While there are many reasons people find saving hard, understanding the concept of saving is not hard. At its most basic level, when the money you spend is less than the money you have, what is left accumulates as “savings." This is true for children who receive gift money or an allowance and also true for working adults who earn paychecks and manage household expenses.
Things that are important to do often take planning and discipline to achieve and saving is no different. The America Saves website has many resources to help you set a savings goal and make a savings plan, as well as, a multitude of tips and ideas to keep you on track.
We encourage you to take the America Saves Pledge. Taking an action as simple as that can get you started and provide you with ongoing support, tips and resources to keep you going.
Come see us to set up your savings account. Even the smallest regular deposits add up over time and become a habit. You will enjoy watching your savings grow as you follow your plan and move toward your goal. When that special want or rainy day comes, you’ll be glad you did. And if you need help setting up automatic savings deposits, we can help with that too!
