The Fiscal Fitness Guide to Saving
Resources, Strategies and Tools to Help You Build Up Your Savings
Having more money in savings provides a safety net like no other. Whether you are saving for one of life’s big events – like getting married, buying a house, or starting a family – or simply wanting to feel more secure and in control of their finances, savings can help you achieve a lot. We know from working with our financial coaching clients that more savings equal more peace of mind. The more money you have in savings for a rainy day, the less you fear rainy days. Savings give us a cushion. They help soften the blow of a whammy. They help us pay for dreams and goals without incurring debt. They allow us to plan and dream big.
Use the resources on this page to motivate you and provide you with strategies to start making some serious headway on figuring out how much you need in savings and what kinds of savings accounts you need.
