The other day I was here with two family members. Both have good jobs and no savings and we got on the subject f saving money. I could not believe they both said they had no money saved up. One is driving a brand new car. I know it's a struggle for us all. Just say you can and you will do it.If you have .25 in your pocket you can start with that. Now your saving.. One family member has since started saving coins. I am proud.

People don't realize how coins add up. It is good to save. I don't anymore.

I wish I could save like I want to but ssi stops me. It's maddening to know we have to spend all our money in this hard time.

When the debt bubble collapses it will be necessary to have money saved away or people will have no way out. Hopefully that day never comes, but if it does, I do have money set aside.

@sharon6345 Well so far the tech bubble and housing bubbles have burst, so the debt bubble is probably next. Tech bubble was bad, housing bubble was worse, and debt bubble will likely be catastrophic.

We put away 75 dollars per week, and save change as well. In Canada we no longer have 1 or 2 dollar bills, we have coins for them, I rolled 50 dollars worth of loonies-one dollar coins a few days ago. I almost have enough for a roll of toonies, which will match what I have rolled, then I'll deposit it into our savings account. Like you said, it all starts out small with coins.

@sharon6345 They call the one dollar coins loonies because there is a loon on it and the toonie just because it is a two dollar coin, and I guess it rhymed, don't ask me what will happen when they introduce a five dollar coin.

I save all my change and even try to put some money here and there in the savings. Needless to say we actually have a pretty good savings for whatever we need it for in the future.

saving is an art. One should have a determination. My sister was advising me to save in small which I have not cared. Anyhow there were some compulsory recoveries which add up to lakhs though small they may be.

Yes, if you have a will, you have a way and it also includes saving for rainy season.

There is a saying that goes "It does not matter how much you earn, what matters is how much you save" I always try to keep that in mind when I am having a difficult time in achieving my financial goals. It is always better to be rich than look rich so I agree, if you really want something, you can do whatever it takes to achieve that.

My mother and I talk about this every once in awhile. There are so many people who won't put away a dime, they have to have the newest and best everything and then say they "can't" save money. You're right, where there's a will there's a way.
