Tip of the Day

Money!

Do you spend 50 cents each day at work on a Coke or even a dollar on a drink and a snack?  Although these are life's small pleasures, a conscienteous effort on your part just might pay off in the long run!

Say you average about $5 a week on such.  Instead of doing that, take that money on a daily basis and place it aside.  In one week you will only have $5, but within one year the fund will have $260.00 in it! 

Before that, though, go to the bank after 10 weeks and buy yourself a U.S. Savings Bond.  Make sure you get one that compounds interest such as a Series EE–but check with your banker first. 

If you start now, you will be amazed what you have amassed in 10 years.  You'll be even more thrilled in 20!

If you want to play around with the numbers, do a Google search on "Bond Calculators" and have fun!
