    If I wanted to play it safe, I would probably just save whatever I can spare. Yet I do not have the luxury of waiting for the savings to accumulate due to pressing needs. For faster multiplication of the little I have, Investing is the way to go. Sometimes depending on one’s goal, you may need to hold the little that you get bit by bit until you get to the investing target amount which means you may have to save for a while before embarking on investing. What we choose to invest in is a whole different story. In my case, I would not have gambling, online trading, or anything that puts me in constant anxiety in my options.

    Hello Don, when you say extra money, I hear SAVE for the purpose of investing later. Investing is key but you must have a tangible goal that you want to achieve hopefully one that will bring you back more returns.

    Most of my life I have got money and consumed it…. One time I decided to start saving just a bit and it has been a good culture to build on because now I just do not want to stop saving!

    Now, when I get extra money, it’s very tempting to want to use it up. But hey… As long as you have an investment goal, or not, it is better to save the extra money and think about how it can work for you.

    For example, I save in a sacco. At the same time the savings are an investment as I get a certain share of dividends when the company is sharing out profits. This is money I never had. It’s extra money, right. I’m so obsessed with saving now, I just inject it back into the sacco!

    The day I have a tangible investment plan, my savings will work for me as I will be able to borrow a loan three times the amount I will have saved.

    At the same time, consume wisely, make good consumption plans so that you have money to save and invest.

    What do you think?
