We all have that idea that we only have to buy the things that we think are necessary or need. Unfortunately, we end up spending so much more not only on the things that we want but even for the things that we haven’t though about using. They are just a pile of junk collecting dusk in different parts of our house.
Necessary things are things that may not be vital to our preferences but important for our existence. To sum it up they are food, clothing and shelter. Without any of the three we will have trouble living the normal life or even living at all.
The money that we earned should first be spent on the things that are necessary. Our salary should go to what we will eat or the things that make food, clothing that covers us in any season and shelter so that we’ll have protection and a place to rest at anytime of the day.
There are also additional necessities that should be considered in certain times in our life. One good example is education. We have to spend money on books, dormitories and fees. All of these are important so that we could earn a degree, get a better job and live a good life. Even today, books have been an essential part of life for some as they increase their knowledge about the things around them.
Another essential but not necessary for our existence are the things for transportation and communication. Our car, our mobile phone and for some the internet has become an important part of their life. Their lifestyle and work maybe technically inclined so these things are very important to them. Today’s lifestyle is also inclined to be more technical so these things are important for one person’s life.
But that doesn’t mean that you have to spend so much on these things. For example, you don’t have to spend money buying food that you may not eat. You can limit your spending on things while availing the things that you need. Another example is your clothing. You really don’t need to have those really expensive designer clothes to look really good. Somewhere in the city, there is always a store that sells a good-looking shirt that doesn’t really cost much.
The point of limiting your spending is more important for the things that are necessary for our lifestyle. We don’t have to buy muscle or sports cars so that we would good or cool in them. Remember that the prices of gasoline are only getting higher and muscle and sports cars could quickly eat up your gas. If you’re planning to buy a car, always look for a car that has high miles per liter (mpl).
Not only you’re saving yourself some money but you’re helping the world as well. Your communication device depends on what you need. There are lots of mobile phones today that offer video communication, music on the go, the ability to view files and browse the internet. However, the prices of these smart phones are very expensive not to mention the fees that you have to pay to these mobile carriers monthly. Think of the things you need from your mobile phone and if the only thing you need is a good phone to call and send SMS, you’ll be saving a lot of money on the price of the mobile phone and your monthly rate.
There are things in life that are necessary to our lifestyle and existence but that doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands of rupees monthly just to cater to that need. There are money-saving options found everywhere that will give you the same convenience on a lesser price.
