Do you put money away each month in a savings acct?

No, we don't. We only have a checking account and our daughter has her own savings account, we try and put in there as often as we can or when she gets money from family :]

We used to put money in the savings acct...the last time we did was when we put a huge chunk in after tax returns came. We're waiting for DH's stepdad to let us know when he's ready to do the body work on DH's car and we don't want to take money out of savings to do that...so once the body work is paid for...we'll start putting money back in savings from each paycheck :)

No we dont but we have a good chuck of money in the savings account with a high interest rate.

Now that DH got a promotion & pay increase we'll start putting a little bit into savings each paycheck.

I have it set up so $20 is automatically transferred to our savings account each week.  I don't even notice it missing.  I hope to increase that soon!

YES.  Every paycheck we put money into savings.  DH gets paid twice a month.

I used to do it a lot more regularly but I don't even remember the last time I did. I need to be better about it though, even just $5 a week or something so it keeps me from spending it. Things are just tight right now (like always, lol) so savings is not my first priority, which is totally backwards I know. I used to be good about putting money in my son's savings account too but haven't done that in a while also. I think we both have like $10 in ours, lol.

No. I don't have a savings account for my kids yet. Some of my older son's money is in our savings account. Hoepfully soon we will be able to start a savings account for both boys. Whenever my youngest gets money from someone I do put away for him. I try to do the same with my oldest but he always wants to buy something with his money.
