Saving for something can be rewarding and a bank can help with that. One thing one can save for is a house. Its a big purchase but it can be a great investmeent. Make a goal for oneself of purchasing a house. Set a threshold off a certain dollar amount, $500k is a good goal to aim for. Next, keep this money in a special account in the bank. The banker can be helpful too. Work with them to make a plan, budget, and goals. Beyond this, look at houses in the area one dreams of living in.
