Want to know how often you will double your money?  Check out the list below and keep saving!

Rate of Return/ Investment doubles every…
2% / 36 years
4%/ 18 years
6%/ 12 years
8%/ 9 years
10%/ 7 years
12%/ 6 years

The big question is where can we put our money to get a 8-12% return?

If you are starting to save young, the advantages are in your court versus people who are older and waited longer to save.  Enjoy!

    Thanks for the new post! I am saving everything I can so when I get old (when there is no social security) I will have something to fall back on.
