My Money Philosophy

There’s no getting around it – we need money to survive. Very few of us have the ability to opt out of the system, but that doesn’t mean you have to let it control you and your attitude to life.

Money is only a means to an end, after all.

Saving Money

Why save money? Most of us have to work hard for the money we do get, but it’s not always easy to make it go far enough. The world wants us all to be more materialistic, it seems, and we’re bombarded with the message that we should be spending more, and that if we don’t have enough, then we should work harder to get more.

Really, wouldn’t it make more sense to be more careful with what resources we already have, instead of letting them slip through our fingers and then having to chase more?
