A woman demonstrated the sweetness of delayed gratification in a TikTok video posted by @dipuozoemashilane.

She freed the money stuffed inside a 5L bottle and started rejoicing that it was time to spend it.

Her accomplishment was inspiring for many because most people barely get by and don't have the luxury of putting money aside with the high living costs.

Those with some spare change shared that they wouldn't be able to fall asleep with that much money lying around the house because they'd be tempted to blow it.
