This is really intriguing - it is really a great idea, you definitely wouldn’t notice 50 cents here or there, really, would you? But it would definitely add up over time. Amazing the co-founder said that he saved over $500 via this method in only 3 months!
What do you think? Is this silly? Yes, you could just do it yourself, but would you if you had to think about it each time?
I started using Acorns a little over a month ago (I made my first deposit on September 3rd) and so far have been really impressed. I’ve already invested about $50 worth of round-ups into my account. Do I plan on retiring on my acorns account? No way. But it is nice to see my spare change being used effectively.
I’ve only been twice, but I do! It’s a great workout and everyone is incredibly nice & encouraging. From the beginning it was very clear to me that they really don’t care what kind of shape you’re in, as long as you’re there and willing to work hard. You should check it out sometime! And make sure to say hi!
November Project is a group that hosts free workouts around the city. It initially started in Boston and has now expanded to chapters across the US and Canada. I figured that if I’m really serious about running a half marathon next spring, I should probably start building some endurance and cross training into my normal routine.
Lauren, Goodie, LG, or Laurgood, depending on who’s asking. I’m a 20-something New Hampshire native and a New York City transplant whose life is a little less Sex and a little more City. This is my place to document my life, share things I see and like, and occasionally use as my personal “internet filing cabinet.” Thanks for stopping by!
