Have you ever wanted something, but didn’t have enough money to buy it?

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 you get.
  • 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.
