Save it. Spend it. Grow it.

Save it, Spend it, Grow it.

As Treasurer for the City of Chicago, my main job is to protect and manage our city’s money and investments. I also want to see Chicagoans make smart money choices for their own families. This means spending only the money you already have and watching where your money goes.

That’s why my office has launched Chicago’s first-ever initiative to help Chicagoans “Save It. Spend It. Grow It.”

On this website, you’ll find out how to track your spending and why you should say No to credit cards. You’ll discover what a bank can do for you. And you’ll get tips on talking to your kids about money. Because it’s never too early to teach the value of budgeting, saving and giving back to your community.
