Hi Rangers!! Saving money is not only important it is fun too. It's important to save for future items like college, a car, and someday a house. I know these things seem like a long way off, but it will come sooner than you think. By saving your allowance or extra money you get for holidays you can watch your money grow each month. The fun part is that sometimes you can save up for a special treat like a new bike, your favorite game system, or even just a toy you've been wanting

Saving is a great habit to start while you are young. For every dollar that you earn or receive, try and save a minimum of 20 cents in your credit union account. You will be amazed at how fast your savings add up and you will still have 80% to spend on special events and emergencies. One way to do this is to have 2 piggy banks in your room, one marked savings, and one marked spending money. Every time you get your allowance or earn extra money put 20% in your savings pig and put the rest into your spending pig. When your saving pig gets full, just bring it in to the credit union and we will deposit it into your savings account.
