We’re all about saving. Saving time, saving effort—and most of all, saving money.
But just plain “saving” isn’t nearly as satisfying as socking away funds for a goal, whether it’s a comfortable emergency fund of three to nine months of net income, college tuition for your two-year-old or a few extra bucks for holiday gifts.
In fact, a recent survey by SaveUp found that most people are saving toward one of five goals: a new car, a gift for someone, a vacation, a new computer or a new phone.
Whether these are the goals on your horizon or you have something else in mind, LearnVest can help you plan for the things you want–in our free Money Center, you can set a savings goal and track every penny of your progress. Through our Action Program, offered through LearnVest Planning Services, we provide financial plans, where a Certified Financial Planner™ works to help you get the most out of your money.
So with the new year fast approaching, for this month’s challenge, we want to know: What will you be saving for in 2014? And what’s your plan to reach that goal?
