Saving money is not easy but can be. That will be a topic for another day. First, on to spending...
Spending money is very easy. We all love doing it, regardless of whether it steers us off course from our short or long term goals.
The advent of credit which most of us have lived with easy access to for most of our adult lives has made us quite complacent when it comes to thinking before buying...when we spend money (in the moment) it usually just doesn't feel real. When the credit card bill comes, however, we are forced to reckon with what likely amounts to a healthy dose of remorse.
Remember, our purchases today, impact the ones we can make tomorrow.
