Remember to “pay yourself first” by setting up an automatic savings plan. It’s free, it’s easy, and best of all it adds up! Consider setting aside as little as $25 each week to be automatically deposited into your savings account.
You can start an automatic savings plan at the bank or check with your employer about setting up automatic payroll deposits. Have a little extra one week? Before it burns a hole in your pocket, use online or mobile banking1 to transfer it to your savings account right away.
