Savings Is Good
Let's say you want to buy Cee Lo Green's Cat in a police auction. But his cat is at least worth as much as a 1993 Ford Taurus. So to afford it you need to get that much money before the police auction next month. So you can accomplish this by saving your money. And as long as you're diligently saving and not dipping into your savings account, That cat is as good as yours.
