This class is all about starting to save and how to take some very simple steps in creating a plan and a habit in saving. We will discuss ways to simply get started, how to make saving easy, effortless and automatic, and how to jump start an emergency fund.

Emergency funds are extremely important; 67% of consumers do not have at least $400 saved for an emergency. We will discuss how having just $400 saved can keep you from entering into a vicious debt cycle and provide some very easy and wallet friendly ways to save.

This class is sponsored by Bank of America.
