How does saving money make you feel?

March 7th, 2009 at 07:41 pm

Today's SA blog's title caught my eye immediately. Saving money for me spells freedom, power and peace of mind. Having savings reassures me that I'm a good parent because I can provide for family in an unexpected event. We have been very careful with our money and we know how to wait for things. The first thing I do when we get our checks is to designate a certain amount of money just for savings; for me saving has become second nature. I know that money comes and goes and it can all disappear in a split second, but nothing beats the feeling that I can pull my own weight for a while without a job.

    It does for me too. To me, it comes down to two words:
    "Financial security" or "financial freedom".

    It's not only comfortable and even enjoyable, but it's a necessity to me. I can not NOT save. I must, for my own sense of comfort and progress....

    It makes me feel fabulous to put money in my savings. It means freedom from credit cards. I feel like giving a big "hurrah" every time I look at my savings balance or realize on payday that more money went to savings. If I didn't have automatic deposit, I have a lot less motivation to do it because it's more difficult. With automatic deposit, not only does the money go into the account, but it stays in, and I even find myself "finding" more money and making a point of going to deposit it to the account. It's so cool. I love it.

    A little of both security and freedom. Especially in this environment. Both are important.
