Thinking back to my primary school days, my saving habits have been consistent. I used to spend 30 cents of my 60 cents on food, and save the rest in my metal coin box (to buy the occasional flag eraser cough ) . Soon enough, I had to ask for more coin boxes - total of 4 or 5 - all differing designs based on what was hip or cheap then. This went on until my dad opened a Kids Saving account & I unwillingly entrusted my literal life savings to the bank (but but.. what if they short change me!!). Fast forward 20+ years, I'm still delaying gratification on atas food, bubble tea & Starbucks, and no longer collect erasers. What am I saving for? I don't know, but I have a feeling settling down, purchasing a house & LIFE will cost a lot more than the 107 erasers I have biodegrading in my closet.
