Most teenagers have big dreams. Some dream of owning a car, traveling, or starting a business. Many plan on attending college. All those dreams require cash. So how do you turn that dream into reality? Be a dream achiever and start saving your money.
Think: $1.67 a day!
If you're 13 years old and you save $50 every month until you're 18, you'll have $3,000.
You might think, "I can't save that much a month!"
Oh, yes you can! Think about it in smaller amounts.
Fifty dollars a month is about $12.50 a week, or $1.67 a day. An easy way to save $1.67 a day is to skip the cafeteria and take your own lunch to school.
If you don’t get an allowance, you can save some of your birthday and holiday money. You also can do odd jobs for your family, friends, and neighbors on weekends and during your summer vacation.
If $50 a month is too much to manage, set a smaller goal. The main idea is to get started and to be consistent. You can raise your goal later.

With a little self-control and some patience, you’ll soon be living your dream!
