Tips for Savers


PAY YOURSELF FIRST before spending any of your paycheck. Put whatever you can in your savings account, even if it seems like a small amount.

OPEN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT AT A BANK THAT IS NOT VERY CLOSE TO YOUR HOME OR WORK so you can't withdraw your money easily.

KEEP YOUR CHANGE AT THE END OF EACH DAY. Put it in a special savings container or your piggybank. Every couple of months, count your change and take it to the bank.

BANK YOUR SURPRISES. If you receive money unexpectedly, such as a gift or a tax refund, deposit it in your savings account.
