Why Save?

Written by David Dixon – 9/26/22

The bottom line is you’ll thank yourself later when you have savings to fall back on in tough times, emergencies, or disasters.

Just recently, in Southeastern Kentucky, there was a huge flooding disaster and folks lost everything. While insurance and other funds come into play, those things take time. This is an instance where having a savings account can come in handy to:

  • rent temporary housing
  • buy a car
  • replace clothes and daily necessities, etc.

Another time a savings account can come in handy is during medical emergencies. The expense of staying in a hotel for a family member’s extended hospital stay or missing work and not having sick time can pile up. You do not want to be left moneyless.

  • Financial Independence
  • Being debt-free
  • Becoming a homeowner
  • Purchasing a car or other big-ticket item
  • Supplement retirement
  • College expenses
  • Traveling and experiencing all that life offers
  • Being free from worry about expenses

Being financially secure comes from having savings. Setting money aside gives you peace, expands your quality-of-life options, and eventually can lead to retirement. Saving money is extremely important in these aspects.

With a combination of hard work, smart savings and investment decisions, you are one step closer to being one of those wealthy folks you see on TV.
