    When we are young saving sounds like a waste of time, better to spend the money right now. Some do manage to save if it’s with a goal in mind – a car or wedding for example – but few will just save as such. Sadly the modern philosophy is “why save when a purchase can be made on a credit card and paid for over a period of time?”

    The infographic should have mentioned alcohol as one of the biggest money sucks.

    I love how the infographic says, “Maybe you can afford everything, just not at the same time.” :) Great advice!

    When we are young we tend to comparewhat we do with what others do. Chosing the right people to be friend with dertermaine if you are able to save or not save at this age.

      Peer pressure can influence anyone but ultimately we all have control over our own spending decisions.

    I totally agree with the infographic. I am 23 years old and try to save more money to start my own business.
