TODAY’S TIP: Saving for that rainy day, or for that sunny vacation. There are no tax advantages for short-term personal savings, such as for a vacation, a holiday fund or your next vehicle. Nevertheless, it’s wise to save for such expenses. You’ll spend less for those things by paying cash than you will by putting them on a credit card or by taking a consumer loan and paying hefty interest rates.
