The sooner you start saving and investing, the more likely you are to build a million-dollar portfolio.
If you start at age 25, for instance, you only have to save $15 a day to reach seven figures by age 67. That's assuming a six percent average annual investment return. If your annual return is eight percent, you only have to set aside $8 a day.
To bring these numbers to life, personal finance site NerdWallet created a chart showing how much money you need to set aside each day, month and year in order to have $1 million saved by the time you're 67. It assumes you start with zero dollars at age 25 and also assumes various average annual investment returns.
