Thoughts on finance
It’s okay to want material things regardless of your philosophy on life. The key is having balance. Perhaps you want to try the new Charlotte Tilbury makeup, a trip to a jet-set location or a quality dress from your favourite designers. With inflation going up and higher, the cost of living skyrocketing to the point most of us feel like it’s impossible to put a penny aside for rainy days, and the scorching summer heat summoning us to long for a few days on the beach, it’s a problem that most of us feel entangled into. Although, you don’t have to miss out on experiencing the joys of having a few nice products and creating memories just because you’re on a budget.
First and foremost, remove yourself from the lack and poverty mindset and stop saying ‘I can’t afford that’ or ‘I will never be able to have this.’ If you’re an avid reader of my blog, you’ll know I’m about reprogramming the subconscious mind to elevate lives. When you use such words concerning your growth, you have immediately placed a limit on yourself. If you don’t already know, we live in an abundant universe, and you have the power to invite and attract your desires to you. You can reprogram your mind by changing your perspective and having a solid plan for motivation and discipline. Repeat affirmations, journal and dive deep into yourself to understand where the lack mindset comes from.
Swallow your pride and go out of your way to find discounts and vouchers for what you want.
The holidays are a great time to participate in gift swapping with family and friends. It’s also a great time to take inventory of the gifts you don’t want to keep and sell on marketplaces such as eBay.
Know the right time to book vacations. The summer usually gets busy with the school holidays, so try to book your holiday off-peak.
This one is obvious but cut out habits such as buying on-the-go coffee and impulse purchases when grocery shopping. (Don’t shop on an empty stomach to avoid temptation).
Don’t be afraid to bid on designer products on eBay. Although ensure that you research the seller, view all photos and check the seller’s reviews.
Wait for the sales! 40% off is better than paying the total price, for sure. You just need to be patient.
Do you really want the product? Take three days to think about whether you’re buying something because you desire it or feeling pressure to keep up with current trends.
Until next time.
