Aim towards a financially confident you this America Saves Week!
Taking place February 27 - March 3, 2023, America Saves Week is an annual celebration and call to action for everyday Americans to commit to their savings goals. We hope you'll join us this week to pause, reflect, and set your financial goals and create a plan to achieve them!
This year's keynote theme is A Financially Confident You. In this article, we've broken down the topics for each day of America Saves Week, along with some savings tips to help place you on the path towards building your financial resilience.
Make it Automatic
Putting money aside is often easier said than done, but achieving your goals doesn’t need to be overwhelming. Implementing simple habits like setting up recurring automatic transfers can help! In digital banking, you can set recurring automatic transfers for your Clearview and external accounts. This can allow you to adopt a "save it and forget it" approach, helping you stay on track with your goals.
Preparing for the Unexpected
No matter how much we prepare for potential setbacks, the unexpected can always happen. If you think about your finances, do you have enough to cover (or at least offset) any unforeseen costs? If your answer is no right off the bat, then establishing an emergency fund should be a priority. Read our blog article about why you need an emergency fund and how to get started!
Paying for Major Milestones
Major life milestones like getting married or moving into your first home can be exciting, but it can also be very costly! Our free budgeting tool, Money Management, has a variety of features that provides you with a 360-degree view of your finances in one single location. From understanding your Clearview and external account activities to letting you set realistic monthly spending limits to support your savings goals, our award-winning budgeting tool is here to help.
Paying Down Debt is Saving
When thinking about savings tips, you might not consider how paying off debt can help you on your journey. The quicker you can get rid of debt, especially high interest debt, the more you'll save in the long run. The best part is that once it’s paid off, you can start putting those funds into your account. This tip and others are featured on our latest Money Monday segment.
