Saving Savings and Hoarding Hoardings 

1. Saving refers to the act of increasing one’s assets. Saving refers to an activity occurring over time, a flow variable.

2. Savings refers to one part of one’s assets, usually deposits in savings accounts, or to all of one’s assets. Savings refers to something that exists at any one time, a stock variable.

This distinction is often misunderstood, and even professional economists and investment professionals will often refer to “saving” as “savings”

Saving is income not spent, or deferred consumption. Methods of saving include putting money aside in, for example, a deposit account, a pension account, an investment fund, or as cash. Saving also involves reducing expenditures, such as recurring costs.

1. Hoarding is a behavior that leads people or animals to accumulate food or other items during periods of scarcity.

2. (Marketing) a large board used for displaying advertising posters, as by a road. Also called (esp US and Canadian): billboard

2. (Building) a temporary wooden fence erected round a building or demolition site

Interesting Factoid: 

Magpies are infamous for hoarding items such as money and jewelry. (Contrary to popular belief, research suggests magpies are no more attracted to shiny things than other kinds of items.) One theory suggests that human hoarding may be related to animal hoarding behavior, but at this time, substantial evidence is lacking.
