Hello guys so recently I decided to take up the challenge of buying a saving box and dropping any cash from 500 Naira upward into it. My friend helped me get the box and for a couple of days I kept staring at it because I didn't have anything to put in it. Lol. The thing been come dey vex me sef. But I thank God because before long, I started getting some cash to put in there. My target was N1,000 per day but if I get more than that, I'll just take out my transportation for the next day and put the rest in it (wasn't easy though). Some days were good, others not so good. Sometimes I'd go for over two weeks without having anything to put in there while sometimes I could get like 10k, take out my transportation and put in the rest. I am an artisan lest I forget so na daily money people like me dey count on. Nobody dey pay us salary .... Anyway I got the box around late October last year (2020) and started dropping money in it the following month. There were times I was tempted to open it but I resisted. I actually got the box to save up for my house rent. I did this so as not to touch the money in my account or start running around for rent when the time comes. I finally got a new house today that's why I opened it up. Guess how much I saw in there after about 8 months of consistent savings...... N219,000 Now I can pay my rent and I won't even know something left me. It's easier to pay your rent or for any other long term stuffs this way than taking it out of your bank account (na that one dey pain pass. Lol). Lest I forget when you have this box at home, make sure not to show it to unfriendly people. Hide am very well if you can and always pray against the spirit of premature opening .... I did this to inspire some people who have difficulty in saving. Do this for two years and you can buy a car or land depending on how much you consistently put in it. No be everything be prayer point. I thank God and my friend who went ahead to still buy the box even when I told her not to because I changed my mind. Lol God bless you guys for reading. Mods please push this to front page to encourage others. Thanks.
