It’s America Saves Week! Each year we take this week to do a financial check-in with our members and focus on the importance of saving.
Today’s focus is “Save with a Plan."
Having a savings goal is a significant first step, but savers who have a plan are 2xs more likely to save successfully. Developing an action plan for your savings goal allows you to identify how you’ll achieve your goal.
For example, instead of merely stating, “I’m going to save $500 for an emergency fund,” create a plan for your saving journey.
“I’m going to save $500 for an emergency fund by saving $20 a week for 25 consecutive weeks.”
Meet Sari Mazon, a Special Education teacher, wife, and mother, as she shares why it’s essential to save with a plan for her family.
Today we encourage you to take the America Saves Pledge. Once you do, you’ll not only receive support, reminders, and tips from America Saves; you’ll be entered to win up to $750 in the #ImSavingFor Sweepstakes! (See official rules: http://bit.ly/387q4kt)
