// SAVING MONEY AND MAKING IT GROW
You work hard for your money, so why shouldn't it do the same for you? By investing your savings, you can put your money to work, growing your account balance while you go about your everyday activities. The interest you earn can go towards getting the things you really want, like a car, a place of your own or a sick spring break.
The best time to start saving? Right now! Time is on your side. Use your youth to your advantage with the power of compounding.
How do you get started? Try to put some cash aside in your savings or investment account every month, even if it's only a small amount. Before you know it, you'll be earning interest, and then your interest will earn interest and your entire balance will grow! You can get started with as little as $25 a month — you might be surprised at all the places you can find money.
Whatever your saving style, the most important thing is to begin now. Even a small amount of money saved can take you a long way.
When it comes to interest, high is where it's at. Put any funds you don't need right away, or money that's left over at the end of the semester, into a high-interest savings account to give your money a boost.
By having separate bank accounts, one for everyday expenses and one for true savings, you'll be able to better keep track of how much you have to cover off necessities and how much you've socked away for later.
