Are you cautious and careful with your money? From what I have seen while living in Japan, most Japanese people are cautious compared to Westerners. When I lived in Japan, credit cards were not very common, and most people saved money. In America and Australia, most people have credit cards, and a lot of debt. Unfortunately, being cautious and careful with money doesn’t seem to be common in these countries!

The quote for this week is by Joe Moore, an American celebrity, and he says, “The time to save money is when you have some.” This seems to be a cautious and good way to think about money. I think this is probably how Japanese people feel about money, right? On the other hand, most Americans think that the time to save money is when they don’t have any! By then it’s too late!
