The Personal Money Management Center is honored to announce that two lucky students can buy several chicken dinners with their winnings from our 12-Week Money Challenge! That’s right, $234 worth of chicken…or…you know, they could, like, keep saving it or something. Right?! Either way, we matched 3 to 1 their savings during our 12 week challenge leaving them three times as rich!
Our goal was to help students realize that frequent small savings easily add up. The best way to tackle a large savings goal is just to commit to a little at a time. So don’t worry if saving up 5-10% of your income for an emergency savings seems overwhelming. Start slow with a set amount transferred to your account every paycheck automatically. Before you know it, you’ll have a substantial amount of money stashed away for emergency expenses. Luckily for these two winners, they received a nice boost in their balance from us!
What’s that? You didn’t know we were giving away free money? Sorry about that, better luck next year! So keep your eyes open for opportunities to grow your savings.
