Start Saving Today. Getbankednow.org Can Help.
Recent studies show that almost 75% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck and with nothing in savings.
One unexpected auto repair, emergency expense or loss of a job can put many St Louis residents in a bad place with no cushion.
Instead of living on the edge, we can show you how to begin small and build a cushion and nest egg. The important part is having a plan and starting today. As the old adage states: “A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned.”
Here are some helpful hints in starting to save:
Open a savings account.
Set aside an amount from your paycheck.Try to cut out unnecessary expenses. Do you really need more clothes, that expensive cup of coffee or video game? Saving just a little can pay big dividends in the future.
If you receive money or a check you didn’t understand, consider putting some of that towards savings.
Include the family in your savings and budgeting plans. Show your children the value of savings.
