Smartest thing to do with 5-10k dollars?Submitted by kfheuser on Mon, 06/18/2012 - 20:52
I seek the wisdom of the great multitude of intelligent people that pass through this sacred place.
I'm a 20 year-old college student who has saved up 10k dollars over the past 5 years of working as a lifeguard. What is the smartest way to invest 5-10k to make some more money in the short term? I'm loathe to let it languish in a savings account and I would like to have some cushion money when I leave college to pay for loans and what not.
I appreciate any and all advice!
