|MONEYTALK with Al Suffrin
November 08, 2006 at 4:28 pm
Dear Mr. Suffrin: I’m 13-years-old and I’m saving my money so I can buy a car when I turn 18. I earn $60 a month babysitting for neighbors. I also get $40 per month for doing my chores around the house. My mom gives me $10 for every A I make on my semester report cards, and I always get three or four of them, so that’s $60 to $80 per year. She pays for my clothes and other expenses. How much should I save for my car - and where should I put the money? I have $500 in the bank now. - Looking Ahead in Hahnville
