Paying yourself first, or prioritizing your savings, is the golden rule of personal finance.

Start small with just $100 each payday, or even a dollar day (our mobile app makes this easy), and watch your savings grow! Read below for 5 excellent reasons why you should start paying yourself today!

Wallet with money hanging out

– Build a Healthy Habit – When you train yourself to put aside a small amount of money each month, you might find you have more money to put away, even more than you thought possible.

– Create an Emergency Fund – Don’t let a medical emergency or an unexpected expensive repair throw your budget. An emergency fund will keep you out of the debt trap.

Egg in a nest

– Build a Nest Egg – You might be starting small, but you’ll soon have a sizeable nest egg you can use for a dream vacation, to purchase a home, to save for retirement, or whatever you want!
