- Make it a rule to pay all your fixed expenses on the very first day through automated systems. This way, you'll always have a clear view of your financial situation.
- Plan your shopping list in advance, and schedule your big purchases during sales to get a good bargain!
- If lists don’t put an end to your impulsive shopping, it's time to try the ultimate technique: “no spending” days. Your task here is very simple: forbid yourself from spending money on any unnecessary things for one day.
- “Going cashless” seems really convenient, but this way of handling your finances isn't that effective once you see just how easy it is to swipe that piece of plastic!
- Any loose change that you drop in your bag and forget about can buy you a great cup of coffee or a snack that you normally pay for with the rest of your money.
- Whenever something breaks, our natural instinct is to replace it with a new one. But most of the time, it can be quickly and easily repaired! A lot of millionaires agree with this too and strongly believe in committing to a purchase until its last breath.
- Who said that saving money has to be miserable? You can tackle this problem from a completely different perspective, like splurging on things that make you better instead of buying yet another pair of shoes.
- While we're on the topic of effectively splurging money, according to Business Insider, the rich don't hesitate to spend money on services that save their time either.
- Don't stop yourself from buying a guitar if you're passionate about learning how to play it or spending money on a good camera if you wanna get into photography.
- Most millionaires have pretty colorful lives, and it's all thanks to their ability to invest money not only in cool ideas but also in new experiences.
- Let's say you're out shopping, and you see the coolest decorative art ever. Of course, you feel the strong urge to buy it right here and right now. But instead of doing that, you go home and let 24 hours pass.
- If you wanna finally start saving up some money, here's how you should divide your income: 50% goes to all your living essentials (rent, utilities, groceries, and so on), 30% is for personal things (like entertainment, shopping, hobbies, and other things that make you happy), and 20% must go straight to your savings account.

    I like to use credit cards because I can see what I spend my money on to readjust my spending for the next day/week/month. Good money management tool imo. Love the cashback (free money) as well and I don't pay interest either. Whoever keep saying that you pay interest if you use a credit card obviously don't know about how not to pay interest. Ask your cash, "what you spent your money on 3 to 9 months ago?" I make multiple small purchases, no shopping list, and still able to manage. I guess I have a different mindset of the matter. Counting money trying to get the correct change at checkout is a waste of time. Ain't nobody got time for that! I smh at some people juggling their dollars in the stores. If they only knew!

    I believe saving money gets a bad rap now days— If you invest everything and save nothing you won’t have enough liquid cash to fall back on when an investment goes south.. or even think about the big surprise investment opportunity that may come your way.. If you have all your cash tied up in other investment you could miss out on bigger and better deals.. Finances is all about balance and leveraging risk with rewards.. and you need a pile of cash to back you up.. Buying Power is very important when investing

    Using cash instead of a cc is only good for people with absolutely no will power. Cash doesn’t pay cash back on things you would purchase anyway. Cash doesn’t automatically record all of your expenses so you can see where your money is going. Carrying any balance on a cc is a mistake. But ignoring the benefits of using a cc and paying it off each month is bad also.

    What about those people that do all the things that “rich people” and things don’t work out. They do it all, but it doesn’t work. That’s very scary. I can control living with less, but a lot of those driven people are not very happy.

    I don't do the 24 hr. rule. I bring home what I like and then 24 hrs. later return the items I don't need or want. It works out the same.
