okay okay, i know i need to save

But where do I start?

how much should I be saving?

Financial stability is defined differently in each phase of our lives. The best way to set yourself up for success is to look at where you are, where you want to go, and how much you can afford to put aside to get there. Set realistic goals that you can achieve–don’t try to bite off more than you can chew, but don’t sell yourself short either.

Have that truthful conversation with yourself about what you can afford, and remember that it’s as important to tell yourself when it’s too much as it is to say when it’s not enough. Set yourself up to achieve your savings goals, and then push yourself harder when it makes sense for your financial journey.
