Most Americans today are not saving adequately for retirement, and most lower-income households do not have adequate emergency savings for unexpected expenditures. To help encourage people to save, America Saves, along with the America Savings Education Council, created America Saves Week. Started in 2007, around 2,000 organizations participate and millions of people are encouraged to better their finances.
This year, America Saves Week is encouraging everyone to ‘Set a Goal, Make a Plan, Save Automatically.’ America Saves provides helpful tips for successful saving, because not everything is always easy done alone. Take a look at our 5 strategies for saving and see how they can help you.
