Wouldn’t it be nice to have some money in the bank? An emergency fund relieves stress by allowing you to handle life’s curve balls as they happen. A small savings account feels great and is the perfect motivator to grow your savings even more.
Unfortunately, millions of Americans don’t have enough stashed away to get by for even one month without income.
We really want you to think about ways to build up your savings until you’ve got enough to live on for three to six months with no additional income. We’ve got a few ideas to get you started.
