Home Money Management Budgeting Rainy Day Funds!

Everyone, at some point in their life, will have a “rainy day”. For those who are unfamiliar with the phrase, it means a day or time period where one comes across times of unexpected financial troubles. It is always a good idea to save money for times that you cannot foresee from now.

The first step to preparing your rainy day fund is to have a savings plan for emergencies. It’s hard to predict when and where a financial emergency will emerge, and it’s better to be prepared for such occasion. Second, open up a separate account for your rainy day fund. Any spare funds that you receive, whether it’s a tax refunds, raises, a side job, or any extra income, is a good deposit for your newly created account. Third, it’s recommended that you have at least $1,000 to $3,000 in savings, but even if you save $500 it still helps wonders.

Having a rainy day account is very empowering to the soul. It gives you and your family a way out of financial troubles like unemployment for a period of time, or things that need fixing to maintain your life. Saving money also relinquishes stress levels, depression, and anxiety.
