You generally earn interest in a savings account, but be careful that you get one that doesn’t cost you a lot in fees. With interest, the bank pays you (usually, a small amount of) money because they are able to use your money to lend it out to other people for (usually, a large amount of) money.

Read ‘personaly finance for dummies’, and ‘investing for dummies’ – these books are great because they break down everything for you in detail.

Good luck, and keep up the great work…
