My parents have taught me many important lessons to shape me into the person I am today. Among these lessons are: always say thank you, be appreciative of what you have, working hard pays off, etc. Most of these lessons were obtained fairly easily, but one that I particularly had a difficult time perceiving was how to save money.

It not only can increase one’s happiness, but can also increase life expectancy! Continue reading
