Money Management in 1 Minute: Savings

Money Management in 1 Minute : Savings


Savings falls into two general categories: short term (in the next five years) and long term (longer than ten years). We will all have emergencies come up, having just $500 available for emergencies may be the difference between paying bills and going into debt. Short term money needs to be available at a moment’s notice to pay for car repairs, tickets, and other emergencies. Long term money can be put into more risky and less liquid accounts because you won’t need the money for a long while.


Savings vehicles also fall into a few broad categories:
