Mother knows best

by Hannah

I have to thank my mother for sharing me saving early. I got my first job walking dogs which was £10 a day for a 13 year old this was loads and then I got another job in sales a year later as soon as I got paid I wanted to go out and spend it but my mother marched me down to the bank and made me open a savings account and I put most of the earnings in there. At the time I was annoyed but I was able to use £20 to get treats and things now that money I had been putting away every since its paying my way through university!
