So, you’re a tertiary-level student about to take on the rigours of study in a whole new school year. This, plus the other demands of life including family and friends are perhaps the most pressing concerns you have right now. That’s cool, and you’ll get through all of it like a champ. Don’t forget, though, that you should also be taking steps now to secure a financially sound future. Small moves made today can lead to big payoffs by the time you graduate. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
What’s Your Goal?
Do you dream of being able to afford your tuition, or repay your student loan with ease? How about ditching public transportation for affordable housing that’s close to campus? And, wouldn’t it be nice to eat something other than cup noodles for dinner? We feel you.
Start Saving Now
Making the decision to save today is one of the most important choices you’ll ever make to protect your future. Saving today paves the way for comfortable repayment of your student loan, home ownership, a secure family life, a comfortable retirement, and your other goals as you strive for future happiness and success.
Having savings means you:
- Are able to afford the things you want, like textbooks, a new bed for your off-campus flat, a car or a house
- Have cash in an emergency
- Are able to retire in comfort
- Don’t have to depend on others
- Feel good, especially if saving is a major sacrifice
