Saving Small Turns Out Big
A popular financial topic around the New Year is finding ways to save more money. Some people take a portion of their annual raise and set up an automatic payment into a savings account. Others wait to see if a tax refund is on the horizon and "pledge" to put a portion into savings. See how a little saving can add up:
