February 27th – March 3rd marks this year’s America Saves Week, a campaign to bring awareness and education to everyday Americans about saving successfully. Each year, thousands of organizations participate, representing a diverse and impressive coalition of companies, nonprofits, educational institutions, military services, influencers, government agencies, and financial institutions. The week encourages individuals and families to assess their financial well-being, which helps them build a clear picture of how they can stay prepared for the unexpected and make progress toward their goals.
The theme for America Saves Week 2023 is, “A Financially Confident You.” But financial confidence is much more than just how much is in your bank account. Financial confidence is a combination of financial literacy, education, resources, and more. They all play a part in securing your financial future, no matter what your unique circumstances might look like.
Each day during the week has it’s own topic and with it different things to think about. How can I incorporate automatic savings into my regular habits? What major milestones am I saving for? Or how can I jumpstart a new savings journey when I’m ready to take control of my finances?
Below you’ll find the list of each day’s topic, as well as links to resources to help you learn more about how you can improve your financial well-being through saving.
