It All Depends
"It is impossible for me to save any
money on my present income." No
doubt you have often heard such a
remark. Is it true?
Well, it all depends. Most people
could save SOMETHING, be it ever
so small, if they would give up some
of the things they lead themselves to
think necessary." The trouble is, they
often refuse to deny themselves. They
are not willing to pay the price NOW.
But most of them pay LATER, when
they can ill afford to pay.
