Use the Benefits Below as Motivation to Control Your Spending
Financial Security is less about how much money you earn and more about how much money you spend. Poor spending behaviors by the wealthy can drive them into poverty just as disciplined spending behaviors can raise many needy families into stability.
By building discipline in your spending habits and buying practices, you will be much more likely to:
Understand where you are spending your income
With this in mind, you can create spending priorities including saving for the big things you really want. You can redirect meaningless coffee money to once-in-a-lifetime vacations, a home remodel, or a newer more reliable car – the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Live within your budget and still be able to build emergency and long-term-savings funds
By saying no to unnecessary spending, you can stretch your income, sustain your lifestyle, and find present and future stability. Every bit of money you save ensures that you’ll always have access to funds when you need them.
Avoid excessive debt
You won’t need to rely on credit cards, or personal or payday loans because you will become comfortable and satisfied with spending within your budget.
Take care of financial priorities before discretionary spending
You can know you will always be able to pay your bills. Consider the large amount of relief that can provide.
Establish regular investing habits in preparation for retirement
Being able to put anything away now will ensure more comfort later on. Compound interest is a powerful thing. When you spend, you deplete your money supply. When you invest, you multiply it. Isn’t that more exciting?
Understand your personal spending habits and eliminate wasteful expenditures
You will be able to spend more on the things you truly care about. Never thought you would have money for impactful giving, community classes, or investing in your hobby? Controlling your spending is the first step to getting there.
Be an example of a responsible consumer to your children and family
Everyone around you will be better off as you share your success with them. They, too, may adopt better spending habits and start getting more from their spending.
