As a kid,I never lacked anything. I never saw the need to save but as time goes on,I saw the need to save.
One needs a back up plan so that you can have something to fall back on when you are broke.
If you recently started working and you have a lot of bills to pay like rent,light ,internet and so on,its easy to push saving to the bottom of the list.
If you don't want to rely on your parents for everything, then you need to start buildings a saving nest egg.This can help you pay off your debt and get on the property ladder.
At some point in your life,you will face a hefty bill whether to repair a car or to repair a laptop.Your savings can help you cover this costs.
Unemployment is something we don't plan for.You may suddenly find yourself unemployed. Your savings buffer can help you pull through during this trying times.
Getting married or having kids may be last on your list but at a point in time,some big life events sneak up on us and having some savings will help us during this times.
