Money Minute #45 – Keep Your Cash Under The Mattress


I hate to be the bringer of bad news this Friday, but banking interest rates will not be returning to normal. This is especially bad news for those of you that have been saving through the pandemic!

The message today is simple. Keeping your savings under the mattress will earn a higher return than cash in the bank!
