I cannot save money at the bank. I have a savings account in this jar.
Why do I save more money at home here but not at the bank?
Is it a fear of not getting used up if I can see a number?
Is it I can see the cash through the glass and I feel secure in knowing I can add to the jar. I am just a little like a kid.
I think it is because I find it more fun and easy to pop coin and bills into
a jar and know it is mine to take when I want?
No, that is not it.
It’s because I feel younger when I can save money this way?
There is a child in me that is coming out more and more and I am enjoying
this way of handling the cash and secretly putting it away.
I can’t seem to keep $100 in my savings account. I know it is there but I cannot touch it.
Money is really a tool for resources to use for buying things we need.
Money flows in and goes by and then it keeps flowing in and passing by, just like a fast moving stream or river or water from a tap.
How do I grab some of that water? I can’t unless I collect it in a bucket or sink or scoop some of it out with a cup.
I love money and money loves me. I just remember it is a resource or a tool for getting services we need or want.
The perspective on this tool is different for everyone.
