A big purchase like a home requires big savings. But what if you can only save small amounts? Can you still save for a home?
You can meet any of your financial goals if you’re determined. Here are a few tips for saving in big and small ways, on a consistent basis, so you can increase your home savings account.
1. Direct Deposit Your Savings
It’s easy to spend money when you have it. And it could be challenging to transfer money to your savings account if it’s already liquid cash in your checking account. Because when you see it there, you might be tempted to spend it. So pretend like you don’t have it.
Instead of depositing an entire check into your checking account, each month, deposit a portion of your paycheck directly into your savings. You won’t even miss it. Check with your employer to see if you can split your direct deposit into more than one account.
2. Institute a Personal Pay Day
We all have expenses we have to pay by a particular day. Why not institute the same plan for saving? One day a month, institute a personal pay day where you must transfer money into your savings account for the ultimate in personal accountability.
