MAKE A BUDGET BEFORE SPENDING – PART 6
At this point in this series of articles, it is opportune to make a synthesis of the importance of carrying out cost balances. Life requires us to be aware of our expenses when we have greater economic gains. From a young age it is easy to manage small amounts of money but as adults, the responsibilities are much greater, and our income determines whether we can have a good lifestyle.
It is evident then that spending and/or buying is a natural part of life and that we have the right to spoil ourselves and use our money how we see fit. However, it is necessary that we know how to properly spend our money, frequently observing the ways by which we act against what we have and to what extent we fall into the temptation of wastage and drowning financially as a consequence.
The Advantages of Costing
In this way, as a summary examining how we use our money will always offer us the following advantages:
It allows us to see how necessary it is to buy a product.
It helps us to differentiate between real needs and wants that we want to fulfill immediately.
It teaches us that we can have patience and control over our desires.
For the same reason, we can assume savings policies to achieve what we expect to acquire but in the long term.
Likewise, it teaches us to think objectively. Costing helps us to avoid being compulsive buyers and be reasonable with our money.
As a result, our lifestyle will take a positive pace regardless of any type of indebtedness we may have.
A cost analysis will always allow us to see how solvent we are and the faculties we have to pay for the things we wish. In addition to studying the costs in depth, it also opens perspectives on how to evaluate purchases, allowing us to find better products as a result.
It is not the same to buy the most popular smartphone in the market, whose price will be too high, to buy a much cheaper model with a set of more advanced features. The same applies to all aspects of life: the fruits and vegetables in supermarkets are much more expensive than those of the street markets are, precisely because the latter are more subject to taxes.
The Option to Save Is a Reflection of a Good Balance of Costs
The savings made under the approach of getting something at a future time becomes the most plausible logical deduction of conducting real balances and analyses of our lifestyle costs. Saving becomes a test of how smart we are when it comes to our finances and our objective vision of thinking before acting or thinking before buying.
We Own Our Financial Destiny
To lead a tranquil life when it comes to our personal finances, one of the golden rules is to continually analyze the expenses that are made; keeping in mind at all times the positive or adverse effect that these may represent in life.
It is the responsibility of all people to be aware of how they are spending their money, so as not to take surprises and acquire financial debts that seize their tranquility and the right to have economic solvency.
