Always a touchy subject to touch, it isn’t new news that women have a hard time saving money. Whether it is the call of an irresistible LBD or the sweet hum of the new nail color we just have to try or not to forget, the unending whistles from shoes, there’s something about the world around us that just does not allow us to save. Whenever we are determined we shall save the precious wads from flowing out, you can almost hear the wicked ‘we’ll see’bout that’ laughter of the universe!
So- for all the women who just cannot save, you know these struggles, don’t you?

No matter how many promises you make or how strictly you plan to design your budget, there’s somehow no way to keep track of the green!

And if by any miracle, you find that you’ve saved a little something, your shock only ends with a loud shout of PARTY- sending you right back to where you started at! <sigh>
5. Watching friends building a paradise, brick by brick, hurts you!

Oh, it’s not that you’re not happy for them, you are, but that doesn’t take away your right to sulk at just how on earth they can save so much and you sit at zero!
6. The depression from the reminders of saving

The insurance ads burn your eyes, the phone calls from banks tear your ears apart and when an agent shows up at the doorstep, you’re like – ‘Just go back without saying a word and no one gets hurt!’
7. The dream of flaunting a Mango show stopper piece remains a dream!

Because massive bundles of the kind of ‘green’ you like aren’t growing on the vine you planted outdoors!
8. Missing out on the fun of smashing a piggy bank

Oh, unless you’re counting the times when you smashed your sister’s piggy bank when your own pocket money ran low, there’s absolutely nothing on that front either!
9. The mortifying sorrow of getting 0.0 as the balance inquiry
There are no words that can even remotely capture the helpless sadness that takes over you, every single time you go and check your bank account balance.
10. You have a massive friends-family debt

Because let’s face it, those outfits displayed in the sale you went to looked too fabulous on you to ever be left behind (and that, is so not your fault!)
11. You’re the one shouting PARTY- minus the ‘on me’ phrase!

And I know how bad it can feel. But without the savings watching your back, hosting crazy bashes your people love could be a hard errand to pull off! So, a wise choice, I’d say!
12. Worrying about the healthcare bills

Well, isn’t it natural, when you don’t have the humongous amounts of green to take care of further more humongous bills that come with the goodness of healthcare? You gotta work on this one!
13. Failing to visualize your future
