Make good use of your spare change

With the rising cost of food, fuel and just about everything else, straining your finances, you can make better use of your digital dimes and nickels.

Acorns is an investing and savings app, which automatically rounds up the price of your everyday purchases to the nearest dollar and places the excess into a smart investment portfolio.

Let’s say you purchase a doughnut for $2.30 with your credit or debit card. Before you’re done licking the sugar off your fingers, Acorns will round the amount to $3.00 and invest the 70-cent difference for you.

Your spare change may not seem like much, but look at this math: $2.50 worth of daily round-ups add up to $900 per year — and that’s before your savings earn money in the market.

Signing up for Acorns takes less than five minutes with this special link, and you can start saving automatically for as little $3 a month.
