My salary is just enough for our expenses. I sometimes save money but there are always unexpected expenses. Birthdays, christening, anniversaries, school projects, etc. It's really hard to save money. My only savings now is the money I'm earning here. LOL. I hope I can be more active. Saving money is very important. If we need some money for emergencies, we can use something. I hope to have a part-time job. If ever I'll find one, I will save my salary in a bank. Happy mylotting.

Yes, saving is really necessary. I want to save my 13th month pay. I hope I can save half of it if not the whole. I got my first payment in myLot. That will be my savings. LOL. It's not big but I guess it will be a good start for me to save money. Also, I guess someone will give me a part-time job in January to February. I hope I can have that job. Thanks a lot for your comment. Happy mylotting.

It is certainly a good idea to save money. My husband and I would love to be able to save some money, but things are tight right now, and we can't really afford to do so, for the time being. It's something that we would like to do in the future.

Cobalt, saving money is very important to everyone of us. Because we never know when we are in need to spend more money then the usual. That's why, always make sure that a part of our money is going into saving. Always budget our expenses and spend only when it is necessary. Hope you are able to earn more from your online activity for your saving.

I've worked, I've saved. Then I got married and she took it all. Ouch. Well, I had to start to rebuild. Now, my money is mine and it shall remain that way.

Saving money can be done by alloting a portion of your income or by cutting down on your daily expense. As for me, I am saving money in the bank because I need it for immigration purposes. I need to save huge sums of money so i could convince the immigration that i have sufficient funds when i move to their country.

Hi Cobalt20! Same here. I also save. I can't remember when I started saving but I think it goes way back when I was a kid. Back then I don't really know the value of money, but just the same, I save. Then I brought that habit or should I say character till now. Especially now that I understand the value of money and how hard it is to don't have a single cent with you. I don't have a minimum quota or amount of how much I will save each month, I just save money which I call "safety money" . In that way, I feel secure knowing that when I need something, I have money to spend :)

It sounds like you are making a good plan. Congratulations. I would like to save money, but right now we are paying a lot of bills. We are doing some extra work so we will have money to put away. I save most of my online earnings.

Hi cobalt. One of the stories that I love most is the story about the ant and the grasshopper. This story emphasized the importance of savings and the negative effect if we do not. Personally, I am saving in order to buy the thing that I wanted to have. So I am saving my online income for that purpose. Have a nice day!

Yes. I am saving too much money that is why I can't buy new clothes. I have clothes which is very old. I can't buy my shoes because I don't have any shoes. I have sandal but its difficult for me to wear it. My feet would get soar but there is nothing I can do about it because I don't have any shoes and so, I stay at home trying to save money I earn online before I could buy anything.

I really agreed with you my friend. I always save my money in Bank. Saving money in Bank can make us to ready if something bad happen. Maybe like accident or one of our family have go to hospital because they get sick suddenly. We don't know it and we have to prepare it. And of course with saving money in Bank can be more safely than we put all our money in home.

I do save money. Ususally with an end goal in sight. Right now I am saving for a trip aboard. I also have investment money that is taken directly out of my paycheck. Anything earned online goes into a Christmas saving account. Anything left in the Christmas account goes to pay down our Mortgage on our house, which is saving us more in interest in the long run. I am trying to teach my daughter to save her money. I do occassionally let her use her own money to buy a toy that she really wants, but then we talk about how she had to do her chores, clean up the house, brush her teeth to be able buy that toy.
