We've talked about choices: this one or that one ...

But there's another kind of choice: now or later on.

Can't afford it now, but put some money away, bit by bit, and some day there's every chance that there'll be enough.

It's called saving.

The big thing about saving is that you can actually earn money with the money you've saved. It's called Interest. Not much when your savings are small - but the more you save, the more you earn.

And there's more to saving than money in the bank. You can actually put some of your savings into somebody else's business - and quite rightly, they'll share their profits with you. It's called investing in a share of a company. Investing in shares.

You can go to the stock exchange and buy a share of somebody else's company. Anyone can do it.
