Where Do I Start?
When it comes to saving money, the sooner you start the better. It’s not an act that’s accomplished overnight, but a process that happens gradually and grows over time. Just remember, slow and steady wins the race.
Making ends meet can be a challenge. And you may wonder how it’s possible to spare anything. But any amount saved ‐ a quarter, a dollar ‐ is progress. Those quarters and dollars add up. As you get into the habit of routinely “paying into your savings” you’ll see the money you’re setting aside grow.
The first thing you have to do to start saving is take a look at your finances and make sure that you are spending less than you earn.
