Many people have resolutions that involve money – mainly, saving. I am in that boat this year.
The thing that I am doing differently this year though is my number one goal is to not stress about everything as much; therefore, I want to save but I am not going to stress myself out over it.
Given that information, it is important for me to focus on what needs to be done. Here are some ideas for you, and me, to make and save money this year without stressing.
Creative Stress-free Ways to Save Money
1. The Thirty Day Rule
I know that I am naturally a spender. I told a friend of mine the other day that I’m okay with it, I have come to terms with my love of spending.
The problem is not in the spending but in the concept of instant gratification. So, instead of purchasing something right away, I am going to wait thirty days and decide after that date if I really want it.
I am already doing this with big purchases, such as the Blendtec I am purchasing next week, but need to do it with the smaller purchases such as the sticker set for my planner.
