America Saves Week - Weekly Planner

Save automatically

Set it and forget it. It’s one of the easiest ways to save.
 

  • Direct deposit from your paycheck
  • Automatic savings account transfers
  • Automatic contributions to retirement accounts

Save for the unexpected

It just takes a little extra planning and strategy.
 

  • Save enough to cover a minimum of four to six months of essential expenses
  • Start with small, short-term goals like $50 a month then work your way up
  • Find ways to reduce spending, like cancelling a monthly subscription you don’t need, and put that cost in your emergency savings account instead.

Save to retire

It’s never too early to start saving for retirement.

  • Enroll and contribute to your workplace retirement plan
  • Start as early as possible to take advantage of compound interest
  • Talk to your financial professional

Save by reducing debt

Debt management is crucial for financial success.
 

  • Stop creating more debt so you can focus on paying off your current debts
  • Increase your monthly payment to reduce the amount of interest you owe
  • Make bigger payments to one account until it is paid off, then repeat until all debts are paid

Save as a family

Make saving a family affair.

  • Discuss your monthly budget and work together when making shopping lists
  • Include family members in your financial decision-making process
  • Work together on a common savings goal, like a new TV or game the whole family can enjoy
