Setting Personal Savings Goals

Many people dread the thought of saving money as much as they do going on a diet because it sounds like it is about deprivation. In reality, saving is just a way to leverage your money so that it gets you the things you really want. How much money should be going into your credit union savings account each month? Watch this video to learn more.

There is no specific amount that everyone should save. The amount depends on your personal goals. Decide what is important to you and how much money you need to put aside to achieve. You can reach those goals by cutting out spending on things that aren’t adding any value to your life. You may be surprised by how easy it is to cut mindless spending.

At GCS Credit Union in O’Fallon, our savings and checking accounts and other credit union products are designs to help you reach your financial goals. Find out more about how we can help you by calling (618) 797-7993 today.
