Save, Save, Save

Having a savings is a critical start. Whether it's a savings account at your bank or in an envelope at your home, having money set aside is important to get things going.  This savings should consistently grow while you take other steps to have a successful retirement. This savings can be used as your emergency fund during your retirement. It can also be used to start an investment strategy that you can benefit from later. Start saving today, it's never too late to start saving!
