If You Have $1,000 in Your Account, Make These 6 Money Moves Now

So you’ve been working your behind off and finally managed to save up a little cash. Now what?

While it feels great to see $1,000 in your bank account, you shouldn’t just let it sit there.

Here are six ways to make your cash grow and crush your financial goals.

1. Invest like a millionaire (even if you’re not one yet)

The world’s wealthiest all own big chunks of successful companies. But you need a lot more than $1,000 to get started, right?

In reality, you need a lot less. The investing app Acorns lets you buy fractions of shares with your spare change. That means you can own a stake in big firms like Apple or Google without having to pay hundreds or thousands for a full share.

Simply link your account to your debit or credit card, and Acorns will round up your day-to-day purchases to the nearest dollar and invest that change in a premade portfolio of your choice.

If you sign up now, you’ll get an extra $10 added to your account when you make your first investment.

2. Spend a few bucks, leave your family $1.5 million
