We get it, long-term financial planning might not be the first thing that comes into mind when you’re a college student—what with more immediate concerns such as college and travel expenses. Still, it goes without saying that a little saving habit never hurts anybody.

If you ever find yourself stuck in a rut when it comes to handling your finances, fret not! The Maybank iSave Squad, comprised of our very own Candy Rookies, is here to help you get the ball rolling and make opening your own bank account a little less daunting.

Why should you save more?

Like anything else in life, saving money takes practice. They say good habits die hard, so developing good money practices in as early as your teen years will certainly reap good benefits in the long run. Whether it’s from a birthday card from your parents or that minimum wage gig you landed on weekends, every penny countsand putting it into the right savings account is vital to fast-track your progress.
