The Result of A
Two girls were working in the same shop several
years ago. The question of saving money came up one
day, but these girls said they could not spare anything
from their small earnings.
But just as a joke one of the girls said: "I dare
you to start a savings account with me and see who
can save the most" so they started.
A few years later, one of these girls quit working
at' the shop to get married. She was surprised to
find more than $600 in the bank to her credit a very
welcome sum at such a time.
The other girl is still working and she continues
her visits to the bank each week. He account is
well above $2,000 now, and it is growing fast. Her
interest money each year is more than her first
year's savings amounted to.
Perhaps this story will suggest a plan that will
work as well for you.
