Say you're saving for something big, like a house or a car or retirement. Or something not-so-big, like a dinner-date or a new pair of jeans.

Putting money away in an interest-bearing account can help you reach your goal sooner. That's because compound interest can make your money work harder for you.

But how much money do you need to be saving?

Savings Target lets you know just how much you need to set aside on a regular basis in order to afford what you want, when you want it.

When you factor in compound interest, you may not have to put in as much as you thought.

You can try Savings Target right on this page, or download it to your computer so you can make adjustments as you get closer to your goal. Click SHARE to share on a social network, post on a Web site, or send to a friend.
