4 Financial Lessons from The Breadwinner Video

The year 2020 has been very tough to most Filipinos. Luckily, we have our loved ones who will stay with us and help us overcome the challenges that life throws our way. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch the video below to see how we can get through this tough year.

Our hero’s story may be short, but it aims to impart to us some important lessons that can lead us to the right financial path. Here are some of them:

It’s never too late to start saving

If you’re worried that you’re too old to start your savings journey, you are mistaken. Just like our hero’s mother in the video, saving even a little later in life is one of the best financial decisions to make. Whether it is for retirement or an emergency fund, it’s beneficial to have some money saved.

Every peso counts

Saving does not have to burden you financially. In fact, every peso will go a long way if you diligently set aside money to go to your savings. Just imagine saving up as small as 10% of your paycheck each month, you’d be able to save up a month’s worth of your income in less than a year. With a little discipline and determination, reaching your savings goals isn’t going to be too hard. 

Saving can be a shared experience 

It’s true when they say that no man is an island. Take a look at the story of the mother and our hero in the video. Saving doesn’t always have to be a personal experience and can be shared with your loved ones. You can team up with your parent, siblings, or even your life partner to reach your savings goals two times faster than when you are saving alone. Just make sure to track how much you put in your savings every month and avoid using it for other purposes other than your goal.  

Your savings can save you

In times of trouble, your savings can be your lifeline in case you lose your source of income. It can help you get back up on your feet or stay afloat as you figure out how to overcome current challenges. Your savings CAN save you. That’s why it is important to keep it somewhere that is safe and that gives it more value.
