Buzzfeed: Giving Up Bad Spending Habits
While surfing through youtube, I came across a video from Buzzfeed. The video comes from their series called “Ladylike” which is one of my favorites.
Entitled “We Gave Up Our Bad Spending Habits”, the video was definitely an eye opener. Especially when it comes to having bad spending habits and not budgeting your money. As I was watching the video, I could totally relate to what Chantel and Freddie was saying in the video. Especially Chantel, who mostly spent her money on food becuase she was too lazy to cook.
It made me realize that the money that i spend on food, is not worth it. That I could be using that same money to save for other things that are more important. So since then, I have decided to challenge myself with my bad spending habits. I want to focus more on knowing the difference between your wants and your necessities. To understand that it is okay to treat yourself sometimes, but not everyday.
So for this week I have been trying to bring more food from home, instead of spending it out on the street. I also have gave myself a spending limit of only 5 dollars a day or don’t spend any money at all. The thing is, even though I will never be a huge fan of cooking, I still need to make more time doing it. Because in order to save money, I need to cut out the things that I can do from home.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to how bad you really want it. Basically how much you are willing to sacrifice in order to invest your money into something that is more important. Whether it is saving up for your dream vacation, or buying something that you really want, only you can make it happen. So I hope you all enjoyed this post, and have a nice day everyone!
