So you’re short on money this month and need to get all your necessities but at the same time, there are about a hundred and one other things that you want at the same time? Well, fret no more because we’re here to tell you exactly how to spend your money wisely without depriving yourself of all your desires at the same time!
Well, for starters you sit down and make a list of all the things you need to buy this month and all the things you WANT to buy this month. This list will help you differentiate between the important things and the not so important things. For starters again, you may feel like you need that new pair of black wedges, but you may actually not.
Haven’t you already got a pair of black wedges you’ve never worn before, lying somewhere in your closet or even a trendy new pair of black flats that could still work with most of your outfits until you have more money to buy the new pair of wedges?
Now sit and ponder yet again. What about that fan that’s been acting all rusty and noisy lately or your car that’s been slowing you down and causing you trouble at work? Do you have a little spare change to invest in that?
Yes you do!
So make your life easier and get that car or fan fixed- the summers’ here and heavens know your boss will fire you if you’re late one more time. And there won’t be that bonus, let alone any money later on to actually invest in those black wedges or something even nicer in the shoe department- because you spent it on the shoes you didn’t need when you could have been spending it on something you did need!
The more you sit and relax and compile a list of things you do or do not need and the amount of money you can afford to spend on them or whether you should be spending on them in the first place, the easier you make your own life and the more you learn about how to spend money wisely.
We’re not saying do not invest in the luxuries.
Everyone would like a new dress or shoes once in a while.
We’re simply saying be sensible and look at the more important things that revolve around your life first- yes those shoes do look darn good but they’re only limited to making you look good.
Your college tuition or fixing the new lights?
They’re what will enable you to feed yourself, get a job in the first place, keep it, work better and survive before you can take the next step and focus on things you could simply wait for.
After all, as much as we’d like to be, none of us is Donald Trump or Bill Gates!
