I found these statistics pretty shocking.  A GOBankingRates survey finds 57% of Americans have less than $1,000 in a savings account. Even more alarming is the fact that included in that percentage is the 39% of people with absolutely nothing saved. Wow. Saving a little something consistently, no matter how much, is better than not saving at all. The good news is that saving something, even if it seems like nothing, will add up over time.
