How to Turn Small Change into Something BIG

What do you do with your change? Does it disappear into a vending machine or a game? You can turn those nickels, dimes, and quarters into something bigger. That's because saving your small change now can get you into a savings habit. And that's a habit that can make a big difference because if you save now, you can spend later. Look inside for tips on saving big!

Turn those nickels, dimes, and quarters into something bigger!

Say you want a new video game console. Start by putting any spare change you have in a special box or jar. To help you remember why you are saving, paste a picture of what you want on the box. Then if you get money as a gift or from an allowance, put some of that money in the box, too. As you save more money, ask a parent to take you to your local SeaComm branch to deposit the money in your Share Savings Account. The money will be safe there. Plus, you won't be tempted to spend it on something else. A savings habit is one of the best habits you can have. It can last all your life. And it's one your future self will thank you for.
