Set goals and save for them
Once you’ve set your goals, start saving for them to pay for your future purchases in cash and not take on any debt.
1. List your goals and determine how much you need to save for them.
This includes your next car, vacation, furniture, kid’s college, etc.
Listing your goals within a budgeting tool helps you track your progress and see the amount you’ll need to save for each goal.Learn More About Goals and Budgets Setup Goals and Budgets

“I made my dream of going to Greece and Italy a reality. I worked overtime and took on a second job to make it happen. It was amazing. I used my FAIRWINDS account as my vacation account. It was so inspiring to see the money increase until I had enough to go on this once in a lifetime trip. I am single, lived alone and had a basic income. I was able to save by only spending on essentials and focusing on my end goal.”
