What Are You Saving For?

Use That Budget

If you haven't read our tips on creating a budget, that is a good place to start. That budget is your first step to building up your savings. Once you know how much you can put aside to save each month, you'll be well on your way to reaching those savings goals.

What Are Your Savings Goals?

It's always helpful to have a goal. Figure out what you are saving for, whether that be a down payment on a house, a car fund, a ten-year anniversary trip, or an emergency savings fund. Strive to have an emergency fund of six to nine months of living expenses. Saving for the unexpected might also mean saving for opportunities that arise! Don't miss out on special events and important moments- save for them. Whatever it is you are saving for, you'll need to figure out how much you will need to put aside each month or paycheck in order to reach your goal in the time you need it for.

Save Automatically

One way you can do this is by setting up scheduled transfers from your checking account to your savings account within your PRS Online Banking account.
