If you have not been saving enough, these are the three saving plans you should consider.

Savings is so important to our lives but many of us seem to ignore it perhaps because we don't know how far savings can go to save us from unforeseen issues.

1. Emergency Savings

Have you ever thought of saving because of unexpected issues? This form of saving is a fantastic backup plan.
