I always joke my friend that I am saving money so I could buy a house and when they asked me how much did I saved, they would laugh when I answered them the amount. They said it was not even reach 1/4 of the cost for a house, but really I am serious not of buying a house out of my savings but saving enough for emergency purposes, or when I have things I want to buy for myself. And who knows? I might be able to buy a house or assume a house right?
I have learned my lesson, I was not able to save money in my bank and when the kids were sick I have to wait for my husband to go online so I could ask some money from him. And I don’t want that to happen again, my husband has been trying so hard so he could support us here but that does not mean that I should not save money. What if my husband does not enough funds available for me on that day, where would I go to ask money for my kids’ check up? Thus, it is a must to save money, a hundred bucks could do, without you knowing it, it would add up more than of how much you expected.
