Tax-free savings accounts

You should get one. Some info on it:

Been thinking that now that I’m graduating soon, I should probably start getting a handle on my own finances. My dad’s been taking care of that for my whole life, but I can’t expect him to do that forever. Theres so much to learn about different kinds of funds, stocks, savings options, investments, etc. Too much to wrap my head around at the moment.

My dad told me to open a tax-free savings account, which is an account where you can contribute up to $5000 per year, and the amount won’t ever be taxed, which is great. Still don’t know much about it, but the fact that you can have $5000 put away per year is pretty appealing. The interest you gain is minimal, but its better than earning lots of interest and being taxed for it! Anyways, something for fellow students on the brink of true adulthood to consider ;)

On another, more cute note, THIS PUPPY IS SOOOOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE!! SO FAT AND CHUBBY <3 :
