Have You Started to Save?

Many of us have good intentions to start saving for the future, but life often gets in the way. We are too busy, we have other expenses that take priority, or we think we do not have enough left over each month to save. Whatever challenges we face, it is never too late to start saving for the future--even saving the most modest amount today can make a big difference in the future!

The University of Minnesota Extension offers many resources to get you started—from thinking about what your needs and wants are for the future to determining what you need to save to reach those goals.
