A lot of people would like to have money to buy things that they want: from mobile phones to laptops and properties, even for their much-awaited vacation. However, the concept of “saving” is not easy for most people. You can easily take the money out of your bank or pick it from your coin back whenever you want.
But one family was able to resist the temptation of picking their coin banks just to have a summer getaway to Boracay. They were able to find a way to save money without being tempted to get the money.
Facebook page Peso Sense shared how a family was able to get their much-needed vacation after resisting the temptation of spending their savings.
How Did They Do It?
Three children started saving money a year ago using the school allowance they are getting from their mother, father, and grandparents.
According to the person who shared the story, they are always tempted to pick out the money that they save so they devised a solution so they won’t be tempted or won’t be able to get the money inside the coin bank.
The family used an empty gallon of water as containers for the money they are saving. According to her, once the empty gallon is sealed, it’s hard to take out the money.
The children’s goal changed from just saving money to experiencing a summer vacation together in Boracay. In just a year and a half, they were able to save PHP100,150!
With the money that they have, they were able to book a package to Boracay. They also gave their grandmother some pocket money.
