My 14-year old niece was counting her money gifts received last holidays and she’s quite satisfied with the thought that she’ll add it to her savings. She’s not fond of buying left and right for simple and small things she’ll rather save it for a big purchase. She’s saved enough for her expensive slippers which she just hangs on her room and used sparingly on very few occasions. Now she’s saving again for something and she’s keeping it a secret. Last week I’m teasing her to tell it and guessed on some possibilities like MP5, ipods, some gadgets or beautiful expensive accessories. No amount of teasing and persuasion can make her tell her secret, she just smiled at me sheepishly.
