THE SATISFACTION OF SAVING

Sixteen dollars. That was the profit I made from selling my toys and games at a garage sale that my mother had when I was 7 years old. That collection of cash and coins was what I carried with me to Home Federal Savings and Loan to open my first savings account in 1975. The bank teller even handed me a folded and stapled passport in a plastic sleeve that had the deposit transaction printed on it. A few years went by before I made any additional deposits from my lawnmowing money, but it was then when I realized what interest was all about. That $16 I deposited had somehow grown. I didn’t understand how, but I liked it. I became fascinated with the process of making deposits and growing my savings. As I started walking beans and detasseling corn, the REAL money began to come in. I felt personal victories with each savings milestone—

$100, $200, $300 and so on. When I turned 15, I started working at a gas station and received a regular paycheck, but the savings process was still the same. I went to the bank, deposited my check and fixed my eyes on that passport to see how much I earned in interest. I still deposit into my savings with the passion I had as a kid. Admittedly, with auto-deposits, ATM withdrawals and online banking, I don’t get the exact satisfaction, but that’s OK. As for that original Home Federal Savings and Loan passport, I still have it stored away in a box in my basement, complete with the now-yellowed plastic sleeve and the memory of my first $16. It seems money is not the only thing I save. Thanks for reading. Shane Goodman President and Publisher [email protected] 515-953-4822, ext. 305
