America saves week save for the unexpected


While saving for emergencies is always a much-discussed topic in personal finances, here’s something that’s not as widely discussed…


If you are in the position to save, you’re not only saving for an unexpected car repair, medical bill, or appliance breaking down — you’re also saving for the last minute dinner invite with friends and family, the concert for your favorite artist, or the ability to grab a birthday gift for your child’s classmate.

Today we want you to consider reframing saving for the “dreaded emergency,” and recognize that you’re also saving for fun and positive opportunities!

Doesn’t it feel better to contribute to an OPPORTUNITY FUND vs. an EMERGENCY FUND? We knew the answer would be yes! 😉
