𝐖𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐰𝐞 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲, 𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐰𝐡𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐭?
So how do you build up your savings account—and your future? Here’s a quick rundown:
𝟏. 𝐁𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 𝐟𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭.
If you still have debt, start by saving $1,000 as quickly as you can. Then, pay off any outstanding debt. When those two things are taken care of, you can start building your emergency savings.
𝟐. 𝐏𝐮𝐭 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐝.
You have to make saving a priority—not the last thing you do when everything else is paid for
𝟑. 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐢𝐠 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐬.
Estimate your cost and divide that amount up by the number of months you have until the purchase.
𝟒. 𝐃𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐜𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬.
Leave your investments alone until it’s time to retire.
𝟓. 𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐬𝐞𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐜𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠.
For your emergency fund, open a simple money market account that offers basic privileges like check-writing and ATM access.
