From young, I recalled that my mum will bring us to the bank and open a savings account. Small amount as it might seemed; it inculcated a savings behaviour in us – and that money is really not easily earned.
My mum went to get a cow-shaped coin saving box for Xi En from a thrift shop (Xi en was born in Chinese zodiac year of Cow).
We started this saving habit for Xi En when he was around 1 year old. Every time he gets his hands on some coins .. he will throttle to his cow money “box” and stretched for it.
We taught him how to aim and drop the coins in.
Today – Little cow is full and ready to go to the bank!
It’s a good habit to start savings from young!
