Saving money is no easy feat. Even adults who are already earning, know that setting aside money as savings is a real struggle. So, when a young boy was able to have his own savings, his mom proudly shared his achievement.

On Facebook, netizen Charlene Daquiwag is one proud mom to her son. At a young age, he was able to save up money after he was inspired by the “ipon challenge” online. She said her son saved some of his “baon” and “pamasko” to come up with his own savings. The proud mom even joked her son now has more money than her.

Charlene wrote, “Ipon challenge! Yung anak kong mas mapera sa akin. Ito na yung ipon niya ng buong taon. Next year naman ulit anak, pagbutihan mo pa ang pagiipon mo para may pang savingsa ka na. Thank you sa mga nagbigay ng pamasko niya. Yung mga gusto mgbigay, pwede pa daw humabol. Hehehe.”

The mother also assured other netizens that she didn’t touch her son’s earned money; adding that she has already deposited the money in a bank.
