Why saving for retirement now is so important
As explained by Gavreau, one of the main reasons sacrificing now and saving for later is the ‘time value of money’. “The time value of money is the idea that money available now is worth more than the same amount in the future due to its potential earning capacity,” he adds.
In other words, saving and using your money wisely now, like making certain investments, can help you build your wealth and nest egg by earning money off of your investments. Sacrificing certain unnecessary things now to build yourself a safer future in retirement is well worth it.
