1. Begin with a Solid Foundation

Before you start building your nest egg make sure you have a well-thought-out foundation. It is critical to have a solid financial starting point. You want to make sure you have created a budget, paid off high-interest debt, and set aside funds for three to six months of emergency use.

2. Set Clear Goals

Be it you are saving for a house, retirement, or just planning to build your wealth over time having a goal to direct you will keep you disciplined.

Vouch for the SMART financial goal. This goal is widely known for helping individuals achieve goals, it is no exception with financial goals too.

Be specific: After you have set your foundation, specify how much you want over your nest egg period.

SoFi Learn advises us to make it measurable and achievable: "Once you decide on the amount thats your target goal, you can figure out exactly how to build a nest egg that will support that goal. If you want to save money from your salary, such as $1,800, youd set aside $200 per month for nine months."

Be relevant: Make sure the amount of money you build aligns with the long or medium-term security of your nest egg.

Time-bound: Keep up by having milestones along the way, which will help with making any necessary adjustments. Aim to reach a specific sum within a given time reach.

3. Take advantage of Easter Savings
