It's very good advice, thank you - also because you give the impression you have been doing it for some time
This is making you rich. I think it's amazing to be able to save half and of course your savings will be fun to spend on traveling! Nice dream plans Cardia and may you have very happy travels.
That is extraordinary and so sensible. you prove it is a habit learned whilst young.
Helpful comment here. Banks haven't proved worth their salt recently have they? And money is unstable (in value).
I'm someone who hasn't been able to save! Life is tough for some of us and money just isn't ever enough, but somehow we do get by. You are absolutely right though, it is important to have some sort of plan in place for that rainy day.
I agree with you, Goodlady. Life is tough, even tougher for most. Being healthy is the best investment.
Learning how to economize stands you in great stead. Life is full of surprises and having money set aside is always useful, it gives you choices.
That is admirable - great you don't ever have that interest to pay on borrowing for the cars. Nice you're managing to have some money for the future too. I think saving money is a great, rewarding habit. Wish I'd learned it!
I was wondering if I'd ever hear from someone like me. I have never been able to save a penny! I brought two children up single handed and ever since I have to keep myself and money coming in is never enough to pay for everything! Admire savers!
Well, since you've been wise enough to save you stand a chance of meeting those expenses - and that's a bonus. Besides, it's a good idea to set up budget plans for without them, it is almost impossible to save!
