As I scolded my sister all the time, start putting money into your retirement when you first start working. Even if you can’t afford much, because in the long run, it can really grow.
I would tell myself to save! At that age I thought I had plenty of time to save for the future. I met the man who is now my husband at 20 and we both worked full time up until we had a child together when I was 26. We didn’t take saving seriously when we had the chance and now we have a child and I only work part time so there isn’t much left over at the end of the month to save. I would tell myself that it is never too soon to save for the future! www.makesbakesanddecor.com
