There’s no escaping the fact that you’re going to have to spend on your business. We spend on a weekly basis, if not daily. But the spending we do is often not as good as it could be. This applies to be both personal and business expenditure.

We, as a civilisation, are just absolutely terrible at spending money. We seem to burn a hole in our pockets, and we barely see the products or items that we’re purchasing. Why is this? Because we’re not spending the right. Instead of thinking about what we’re doing, we generally just impulse buy until we have no money left. Well, today we’re going to try and stop that for you. We’ve got some excellent ways that you can spend better, spend less, and just generally be more happy with life.

Spending Less

This is the first thing that you need to try and master. Not everything that you see should be purchased, and that’s something that people seem to forget. Even the smallest of things, like a meal deal in the store rather than making lunch out of the things you have in the fridge at home is going to save you money. An effective way to make sure you stick to what you want to spend is doing a money plan each month. A lot of people make these, and just ignore them completely. However, if you make one and stick to it, it gives you a guideline of what you need to spend, and what is better being put away. There are plenty of websites and apps that you can download that will effectively help you plan your money!

Spending Better

If you’re going to spend, you might as well learn how to spend better. It isn’t hard, you just need to look in the right places. The first thing you need to think about is the big purchases you’re needing to make, and if you can save money on them. One big purchase you can save money on is your car, through car leasing. This works by the company loaning you the car. It’ll never truly be yours, but do you want it to be? With leasing, you get a new car every two years, brand new or nearly new. So, every two years is like having a little treat to yourself! It’s so much more cost-effective than car financing, and you get more cover in terms of breakdown and servicing.

Saving More

The more you save, the happier you’re going to be. Saving isn’t hard, people just make it hard through the choice they make. Download a savings app, and let it guide you through the process of effective saving. As long as you’re coupling it with the other two sections that we’ve spoke about, it really isn’t going to be hard to get some money behind you. A lot of it falls down to self control. If you’ve got people asking you to do things all the while, like a meal out for example, you need to have the restraint to say no.
