It is undeniable that money plays a substantial and outstanding role in human's life. We spend a great deal of money for our daily needs and necessities but we should also consider saving money as a wise and intellectual affair in our lives. From my point of view, in order to have a prosperous life, it is much better to save a significant part of our income rather than spend money when we earn it. Amongst several reasons, I will provide the three most common ones to support my notion. These reasons are making more money, saving money for emergency and saving money for old age.

First and foremost, we should make more money in order to have a flourishing life. More money you earn more money you can spend. In my culture, it is an old saying that money produce money, therefore we should save a part of our income to generate money. For instance, we can invest our money in some activities which are profitable, such as buying house. We also can keep our money in banks. Nowadays, some banks allocate significant profit to their customer accounts. Consequently, by saving money instead of spending it, we are able to making more money and guarantee our future.

In the second place, we should keep some money for our emergency. In everybody life, there are some occasions that money is the main key for solving difficulties, as a result we should dedicate and save some money for these kinds of events. For instance, we might have an accident which needs a serious and instant operation and our saved money is so fruitful. By saving money we can be prepared for these kinds of disasters.

Last, but not the least, we should allocate some money for old age. When we are young, we are strong and patient. But, on the other side of the coin, in old age we are so vulnerable and weak. We might not be able to take care of ourselves. Therefore, our saved money is so useful. For instance, we can hire a worker or we can hire a nurse to looks after us and does our daily affairs.

In conclusion, although we should enjoy from money we earn, we should save a substantial part for emergency and for old age. In addition, we should invest our money to earn more and in this way provide a convenient life for ourselves.
