Start an emergency fund
  • You should have a stash of cash big enough to cover three to six months of your regular expenses.
  • Use a conservative account you can access easily, like a savings account.

  • Take a look at your auto, property and health insurance deductibles. Consider increasing them to an amount you could cover on your own, which could lower your premiums significantly.
