Have you ever wanted something, but didn't have enough money to
Putting money in a savings account is a great way to make sure you
have the money you need, when you need it. You put money in the
bank now, and you can use it later.
It makes sense to save money, putting some in the bank every week,
month after month. Over the years, your money will grow and you'll
feel good about saving. You can use a little of the money you've
saved for special things-maybe to buy Mom or Dad a birthday
present, or a surprise for a friend.
Tips from Sandy Dog:
- Collect your coins in a safe place like a piggy bank or jar,
and when it gets full, put the coins in the plastic coin wrappers
and deposit them into your savings account. You'll be surprised how
fast those coins can add up!
- When you get money as a gift from family or friends, put it
right into your savings account where it will get added to your
other money. You'll be able to buy yourself something really
special if you combine the money you've saved with any gift money
- Always put the money you earn from chores around the house in
your savings account. It's a great way to make sure your hard work
helps you reach your savings goal.
