Check out this article on America's savings habits. The summary:
Nearly six in 10 Americans don't have enough savings to cover a $500 or $1,000 unplanned expense, according to a new report from Bankrate.
Only 41% of adults reported having enough in their savings account to cover a surprise bill of this magnitude. A little more than 20% said they would put it on a credit card, the report said, while 20% would cut their spending and 11% would turn to friends and family for financial assistance.
"This is a persistent American problem of how you should handle your finances and spending," said Jill Cornfield, retirement analyst for Bankrate.
The scary fact is that this stat is actually BETTER than what it was last year when only 37% could cover a $500 emergency.
Some people might say that this is a reflection of how bad our economy is. I say it's a reflection of how we can't control our spending.
Want proof? Here are some areas where people could cut spending to save more:
And this is only the tip of the iceberg! Here's a long article from Forbes that details all the wasted spending each year. It's a long, detailed article, but here's the summary:
In other words, we spend money on spending, then we spend money to warehouse and organize the stuff we spend on. Then we pay to discard it. Then we pay to maintain the landfills where it sits for ever and ever. But the expense of shopping doesn't stop there! You pay in time and mental health, too.
Wow. Is that a huge indictment on spending or what?
Needless to say, most Americans could have $500 set aside for emergencies. No doubt, some don't have much and really can't afford the $500. But most spend that money (and more!) simply because we consume, consume, consume.
