Saving is the key to your financial sustainability

People with savings are more financially resilient to shocks as unemployment, natural disasters, and unplanned expenses like medical bills or a new rooftop. Being mindful about your consumption may not only reduce your impact on environment but also help you save more.

  1. Set specific saving goals, e.g. safety pillow, vacation, new laptop, etc. This will help monitor progress and assign meaning to saving habits.
  2. Save small amounts routinely to increase your savings. Have at least 3 months of your expenses saved to ensure you can overcome any unexpected challenges.
  3. Save money by choosing products that will last longer. Evaluate the cost per use of each product and choose your purchases wisely.
Saving becomes a habit for many people. Join them and build your financial sustainability. 7 out of 10 Latvians say they recently started saving more on daily basis. Swedbank survey, 2020.
