Here’s How You Can Turn Your $5 Into $1.5 Million

September 2, 2020

You’re probably skeptical about reading this article, right? Well, let me make everything clear and dispel any suspicion or disbelief. In this article, we’re about to show you how you can make $1.5 million from $5 a day. No scams, tricks, or other measures are needed, all that’s required is you. 

So this is how it goes. Let us break it down further: if you save $5 a day, you save about $150 a month, which then becomes $1,825 a year. So in five years, you will have saved $9,125, and in 10 years you will have $18,000. This is where it gets really interesting: if you add in certain variables like compound interest, your $1,825 a year can jumpstart your financial account. If you start investing $150 a month at a 9% interest rate, you will have $1.5 million in 50 years. This means that the average person who saves $150 a month from the age of 18 will have one and a half million by the time they turn 68. 

Compound interest can help you turn small sums into a fortune, so, take a look at our compound interest calculator and experiment with it. You may not reach $1.5 million any time soon, but even an additional $1,825 a year can make a big difference. Think about what $5 a day can do in the future.

If you need further tips, here are some proven examples you can save money: 

  1. Reduce your gas bill by carpooling or using public transport.
  2. If you’re a coffee drinker, practice making your own brewed coffee at home.
  3. Instead of spending a couple of dollars over a glass of iced tea, order water. 
  4. Instead of losing a few pennies, nickels, and dimes in the washer or dryer or under the couch, have a household piggy bank to keep all your change. 
  5. If you’re always on the go, save on paying by eating at least one meal at home. 

With strong willpower and dedication, saving $5 a day is a proven strategy to help you plan effectively for the future. You may not realize it today, but a few dollars you have reserved may save you in a time of unforeseen difficulty.
