Tips, advice, and the latest news from the savings world.
Saving money and attending college are two activities that are typically NOT thought of together. In fact, many college students might tell you that they don’t have enough money to buy a pizza on a Friday night, let alone to add to a savings account. But what if we rethink the traditional notion of “savings” to make it a goal that is a bit more realistic for this cash-strapped chapter of life?

They maintain better credit scores, pay bills on time, don't pay for costly bank fees and have less stress than their spender counterparts.
