One of the most important things you can learn in life is how to save money. It’s the first step in getting where you want to be. Studies show that those with a savings plan, regardless of income, are more likely to spend less than they earn. Living within your means is the best approach to saving money and building wealth over time.
Let America Saves help you reach your savings and debt reduction goals. It all starts when you make a commitment to yourself to save. That’s what this pledge is all about. And it doesn’t stop there. America Saves will keep you motivated with periodic information, advice, tips, and reminders sent by email or text message to help you reach your savings goal. Think of America Saves as your own personal support system.
With America Saves Week, February 26 – March 3, 2018, this is a great time to pledge to save. By pledging to save, you will commit to a simple savings goal and plan. Take the America Saves Pledge at https://americasaves.org/for-savers/pledge.
