Angela's Favorite Saving Tip: Have more than one savings account and name them based on what you are saving for. Example, "Vacation Money", "Emergency Fund", "New Appliances"... naming them to the specific goal you are saving for will make you think twice about dipping into savings if it isn't an emergency.
