Why do we save money?
We save money now for when we will need it later. You can save your money for things you need or want. For example, you might save up money to go to college or buy a car someday. It also a good idea to save money in case of emergencies, for instance, if your computer breaks down and you need to repair or replace it.
Why do we deposit our savings into a savings account at the bank?
A Savings Account is a great way to put all of your money safely in one place. The best part of having your own Savings Account is that you can add as much money as you want while earning interest on it!
What is interest?
Interest is when the bank adds money to what you already have in your Savings Account. An interest rate is used to calculate how much money a bank will add to your Savings Account.
