Hi jia! Yes. i do think it is important to save money. I also find saving money hard, noy because i like shopping. It seems everytime my husband and i get a little ahead something happens and here we go back where we started from. The money we saved gone. We are working on trying to break this cycle, but there are some things that are not in our control.

That's easy jia, just stop shopping for things you don't need, and you will save money. Most of the things we think are "necessary" aren't really at all. Try to find the difference between things you want and things you really need. Believe me, there is a huge difference. Once you see your savings start to grow, it will help you to save even more. There are some great free budgetiing programs available on line which will help you get started. Saving money is often very difficult, and yet, it is so important to have some set aside in case of emergencies or unexpected expenses.

If you're really serious on saving money, then buy only those that are important.
