Are you interested in saving some money, or do you just want to spend it when you get it? Well, in the long run, you may want to consider saving.
Now, you must be thinking why you would do such a thing and not just spend all of your money on a new computer game or even a handheld T.V. If you really want to know why, then here are a few reasons. . .
When you grow up, you will have money to support yourself
You will have the money to buy the things you need
If something goes wrong, you will have the money you saved to take care of yourself during that time of need.
You can buy nice, expensive gifts for friends or family without going in debt immediately and when you go shopping with your parents or by yourself, you will have the money to buy many things.
Now, you find that your wallet is getting thinner and thinner by the minute. Oh, no! Why is this happening? This is because you have not been resourceful in how you spend your money. To overcome this bad habit, try checking how much money you have to spend, and then trying to spend only about 3/4 of it if you can. Budget your money. This will save you money, and if you ever have to spend money afterwards, you will have a couple of bucks on hand. You'll probably feel a little better when you find out you only go to the bank to put in your savings and only have to take money out once in a blue moon now.
Have you ever gone to a store to buy something in a discount store that is $149.99, and it comes with a limited waranty. It also comes with a couple of extra goodies. So, you want to do a little research and find the all around best price. At the next store you go to, you see the exact same items with the same goodies and a special lifetime waranty, but it is not a discount store. The good thing is that they are having a sale. This certain product is normally $254.00, and the sale takes off 48%. Which is the better deal?
You probably think that even though the expensive store is having a sale, the cheaper store is still better. Well, think again! The expensive place is a better deal for your money. Not only is it cheaper, but you might fail to realize one important fact. The expensive store comes with a lifetime waranty, which originally came with the product. So, if you ever break the item from standard use, you can get it replaced (usually without any charge), but if you bought the original item, too bad. You would have to buy the item all over again.
If you are ever in situation like this, and you don't know which store to buy the item from, you can use a calculator to do your math. If you don't have a calculator you can use one from Internet sites. Just do a search for "calculator".
