The Limited has a lot of sales, but this is a really great sitewide sale — $30 off Every $50 You Spend (using code TREATS).

Ladies, what are your best tips for building wealth in your 20s and 30s? For those of you (most of you) in that age range, what did you do in your 20s you were proud of — and what are your goals for your 30s? At the outset, let’s just acknowledge the awesome power of compound interest (these interactive calculators from Regions Bank are pretty cool) — it’s why this stuff is so important to get a handle on as early as possible, which I didn’t necessarily do.
