A lot of personal finance is about cutting back, doing without -you know – saving.
But the real magic comes through the freedom that saving affords you.
A saver never says:
“I can’t afford that” or “I’ll never be able to do that“
Instead a saver thinks:
“How am I going to going to get there” or “Let’s do it …because I can”.
Growing your pennies isn’t all about filling your bank balance.
It’s more than that.
It’s about having respect for your own life; dreams; and hopes.
It’s about making sure you priortise where you want to go rather than waiting for your circumstances to change on their own.
Saving also means you have the freedom to do more fun things too.
In fact I’m off to meet the lovely lady of liberty herself as I travel across the pond to New York City for my first ever visit to America! If you’re in NYC say hello!
Why are you saving?
What do you want to do with the freedom that growing your pennies affords?
