Saving and Investing

When thinking through saving and investing, be sure to consider your goals and your time-frame for when you’ll need your money as it can affect the best route to get to where you want to be.  Saving for a vacation next year looks a lot different than saving for your retirement in 40 years!  Not sure where to start?  Start with an emergency fund – it’s a good idea as a student to have at least $500 set aside in case the unexpected happens.  Remember, though, saving and investing takes discipline and often delaying an immediate “want” for future rewards.
