We have millions of odd ways to trick ourselves into saving and spending more reliably. Sometimes it takes a little loose courage, while other methods just need to study a little before shopping. A savings lifestyle blogger has come up with a new way to evaluate personal financial tricks.
Trent Hamm, writing for The Simple Dollar, looks at how money curves or doesn’t curvy our behavior. “There are times when paying attention to a few cents can make a big difference, and there are times when paying attention to a few cents makes you completely waste your focus,” he wrote. The challenge is to be able to immediately tell which one is which one.”
His advice ended up in a common phrase on the advice blog Captain Awaken: Sometimes the cheapest way to pay is with money. For example, if Hamm can save money or time on routine tasks that he repeats daily or weekly, then investing in a new strategy can be worth it. However, if a tactic requires him, such as, to provide personal information or make ins not-so-frequent exceptions, he will not bite.
Alicia Adamczyk of Likehacker says in a different way: “In fact, buying small or inexpensive things is not always a big deal. Sometimes they really enrich our lives, others don’t.” you may be more fortunate simply to take note when you shop and ask how you feel when making a purchase. It’s impactive to start all over again, but sometimes you just need to fix a little in your life.
