You work hard for your money. Did you know your money can work hard for you, too? Your savings can grow with a savings account with a great interest rate, so you can afford to pile on a few fancy accessories?! How can you let your savings do most of the work for you?
I suggest you take a look at the rate and yield you’re getting with your bank to make sure you’re not missing out on extra savings. Some banks offer high-yield savings, while other banks offer little more than tiny one-percent savings yield.
We all know we should save, but sometimes other things get in the way and we have racks of shoes to prove it. Paying yourself first means you won't be tempted to spend the money you need to be saving. Tricky, eh? Saving now ensures you're never caught in a sticky situation without the cash to help you through it. Think of it like that umbrella you keep in your trunk for a rainy day — you hardly realize it's there until you really need it.
