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.
