What Is Important?
November 20, 2013
When you spend, save and invest your money, you want to purchase or save to purchase later on the things you want. To make sure that you are saving and spending your money in the way that will make you happy is to spend and save in accordance with your values. It is important to you to have a cup of coffee each day from the coffee shop, realize that there are other things you most likely will need to give up. Look at where you spend your money every month and scrutinize your expenses. Look at the $500 a month car payment you have. Is that really that important to you? It's looking at where your money is going and seeing if you are investing and spending your money in accordance with what you value and what is important to you.
I'm not giving you permission to not pay your bills, but to look at where you are spending money each month and to make sure it makes sense with your financial dreams and your current situation.
