What is a Savings Account? And Why Have One?

A quick and easy introduction to saving money in a Savings Account:


  • What is a savings account?
  • Pretend the money is not there
  • Every time you get some money, put some of it into your savings account
  • Why put your money into a savings account instead of under your mattress?
  • Interest (aka “Free Money”)

If you would be wealthy, think of saving as well as getting.
— Ben Franklin
