I work all night I work all day
To pay the bills I have to pay
Ain’t it sad
And still there never seems to be
A single penny left for me
That’s too bad
In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn’t have to work at all
I’d fool around and have a ball
– Song by Abba – ‘Money, Money, Money’…
This song might sound like reality for a lot of people.
So, why is saving money so hard?
There are many reasons
– Entitled spending
– Instant gratification
– Not thinking about emergencies and investment
– People pleasing
– Not creating buckets
How can you make saving money easier?
– Intentional spending
– Delayed gratification
– Putting away some money to build it up
– Living for yourself
– Create buckets for all your expenditure
When you live an intentional life, true to yourself and to what matters most to you, you will notice an instant change not only with your money but your mindset, which ultimately leads to so many other good things happening for you.
If this is something you struggle with, know that you can get help. You don’t have to do it all and know it all.
