Having a holiday savings account is important so you’re not tempted to dip into your emergency fund or other savings accounts. Most experts recommend having at least six months’ worth of savings put aside in the event of an emergency. The account should cover living expenses like your mortgage or rent, food, gas, and other expenses that you may incur. If you do have an emergency savings account, it’s important not to dip into it when you need money. By creating a separate savings account, you can make a clear plan to meet both goals.

WHERE SHOULD I KEEP MY EMERGENCY SAVINGS?
Since emergencies are often unpredictable, your emergency fund should be easily accessible at a moment’s notice. Essentially, that means being able to withdraw your funds instantly with no repercussions. Therefore, the best place to keep your emergency fund is in a high-interest savings account, like Pearl Hawaii’s Jumbo Savings.
