|How To Avoid Unnecessary Spending by legalwealth(m): 2:54pm On Nov 24, 2012|
Hi fellow nairalanders!
Answer these questions faithfully first:
1.)Do you buy things you didn’t know you wanted until you saw them on display in a store?
2.)Are you surprised each month when your credit card bill arrives at how much more you charged than you thought you had?
3.)Do you own every new gadget before it has time to collect dust on a retailer’s shelf?
4.)Do you have more shoes and clothes in your closet than you could ever possibly wear?
5.)Does your spouse or partner complain that you spend too much money?
If you've answered “yes” to any two of the above questions, you are an unnecessary spender and indulge yourself in retail therapy.
This is not a good thing. It will prevent you from saving for the important things like a house, a new car, a vacation or retirement. You must set some financial goals and resist spending money on items that really don’t matter in the long run.
unnecessary spending will not only put a strain on your finances but your relationships, as well. To overcome the problem, the first thing to do is learn to separate your needs from your wants.
Advertisers blitz us hawking their products at us 24/7. The trick is to give yourself a cooling-off period before you buy anything that you have not planned for.
When you go shopping, make a list and take only enough cash to pay for what you have planned to buy.
Leave your payment cards at home.
If you see something you think you really need,give yourself two weeks to decide if it is really something you need or something you can easily do without.
By following this simple solution, you will mend your financial life and your relationships.
To Your Success
