Nearly a quarter of savers who take the America Saves pledge chose “emergency savings” as their first wealth-building goal. And they have the right idea.
Helpful emergency savings links:
Think and acting like a saver not only means knowing what you’re saving for and how much it costs, but having a plan for building that savings.
Helpful Large Purchase Savings Tips:
Being able to travel by car can help people earn more, spend less, and get better value in their housing. Cars, however, are relatively expensive to purchase and maintain. American households spend, on average, more than $8,000 dollars on car purchases and maintenance each year.

Saving for education is the second most popular goal (after saving for emergencies) savers select when they pledge to save with America Saves.
Helpful Education Savings Links:

Helpful Investment Savings Resources:
It can be hard to put aside money for savings. But there is an easy way to save money without ever missing it. Make your savings automatic. You can start small and save $20 a week or month or you can try and save more.
