For me, saving money is not as easy as we imagined to just set appart our expenditure for consumption. Aims and motivation are the important role here to save the money itself. Set our own goals, so that we have a great motivation thus can help us more excited about the saving learning process. Although saving money theoretically is a compulsory in daily life, and its explained in consumption equation while Y (revenue)= C (consumption)+S (saving). So that saving have a portion in every human revenue, and the purpose is like for avoiding us from consumptive lifestyle, having an emergency money, reach the others urge and so on.

De Spaarbank in Semarang building now in Kota Lama currently owned by CIMB NIAGA Bank. Its also makes a curiousity, considering most of the Dutch/ foreign bank during the late of 50's decade and in the beginning of 60's decade is nationalized and of course it will be managed by the state company. But CIMB NIAGA Bank is a private bank, and its established in 1955 according to the official website. Well outside all of that story that also brought a lots of question hehe, once again, saving is important personally or in the macro scope is for the government growth. So still have a question “why should I save money?” Think twice :)
