America Saves Week is a national effort to set a savings goal, make a savings plan, and save automatically. The easiest and most effective way to start saving is to simply make the decision to automate your savings. When savings is created automatically, you can avoid the temptation to spend.
The best automatic saving is when you make a decision to do so, and then it just happens:
If you don’t have an account at a bank or a credit union, you can set up a “life line” account. You will have to specifically ask for it at your financial institution and keep an average monthly balance of more than $50. Learn more about life line accounts at the Commerce website.
Not sure how much to save each month? Take the America Saves Pledge. The pledge will help you create a monthly savings plan and will help you stay committed to your plan all year long!
