Savings.....what does it mean to you!?!
I figure you either love it, hate it, or believe that there is no way you can do it!
I'm here to tell you that saving is important, and it is easy! ANYONE CAN DO IT!
I will admit that I am one that LOVES Savings! I always have since I first started working. I will also admit that there are times when I think....why am I saving!?! When you don't have a specific goal you are saving towards, (new shirt, vacation, car), then seeing money just sitting in an untouched bank account may just feel unnecessary! Even as a savings lover I feel that way at times. Or when my husband and I are making choices to live minimally and sticking to our budget, but really I want to purchase something new, I hate having to tell myself no when I have money literally piling up in my bank account. These feelings are normal!
You have to make the choice to save, and you have to decide to make it important for you and your family! Maybe this will inspire you.
HERE'S THE BIGGEST REASON I SAVE:
If you have lived on this earth for very long you have probably experienced things that were hard, unexpected, and costly! If you haven't then consider yourself lucky. Whether it is an actual emergency or just an inconvenience. We never know what life will throw at us, or when. And usually it happens when we are least ready or prepared for it. And whether you have a family or not, you need to take care of yourself and be prepared for things that may come up. Especially though if you have a family, or what if you unexpectedly find out that you are going to be a parent. You want to be wise and prepared to take care of yourself and your family. And that is enough for me. I don't want one unexpected curve ball to throw me totally out of the game!
Here's a great and easy way to start! Check out the chart below and make the CHOICE to start saving! YOU CAN DO IT!
