Why You Should Start Saving Right Now

Business Insider has a great chart that shows how starting your retirement savings at 25 is so much better than at 35. While interest rates for savings accounts and certificates of deposit aren’t great right now, that will eventually change. It’s important to get in the habit of saving now.
