Finance Tip of the Month
Teachers: Ask your students how much money they could earn
if they each saved $15 a day until they were 65 years
State the following: If you invest $15 now—roughly
the cost your morning coffee/hot chocolate and daily
snacks-and save $15 every day (7 days a week) or
$420 month and place your money in an account that
collects 5.00% interest, you'll be a millionaire
by the time you are 65! That’s only $420 a
month or $15 every day—just think what you
could do if you doubled or tripled that.
