Make a Plan: How to Save

When it comes to saving money, the sooner you start, the better. It's not an act that's accomplished overnight, but a process that happens gradually and grows over time. Just remember, Start Small, Think Big.

Making ends meet can be a challenge. And in today's tough economy, you may wonder how it's possible to spare anything. But any amount saved - a quarter, a dollar - is progress. Those quarters and dollars add up. As you get into the habit of routinely "paying into your savings" you'll see the money you're setting aside grow.
