You’ve probably heard or used the statement ‘live within your means’ before. If you live within your means, the money you spend each month is less than or at least equivalent to the amount of money you bring in.
While the concept is familiar to most of us, the practical application of this statement can be difficult. Readily available credit cards, store cards, buy now pay later options and loans make it easy for us to spend beyond our income would allow for.
This lifestyle isn’t sustainable in the long run. The lifestyle eventually catches up with us and we’re forced to make changes in order to avoid financial ruin. The alternative is to continue overspending until it spirals out of control.
A few years ago my husband and I chose to face our financial situation head on. We had expensive credit card debts and loans that were costing us a fortune each month so we decided to gain control of our finances.
Here are a few guidelines I've put together for how to successfully live below your means. I hope you find them useful.
I’m sure many of you, like me, struggle to get out of bed in the early mornings – in particular during the winter months when it’s freezing cold and pitch black outside at 6am. We hit the snooze button on our alarms until the latest possible time, giving ourselves just enough time to have a quick shower get dressed and dash out of the house to get to work on time. Breakfast is either; skipped completely, consumed on the go or eaten once we get to work.
On the contrary, there is another group of people out there who are able to accomplish a lot in that time between waking up and getting out of the house for work, setting themselves up for a productive and successful day. Their secret might be simpler than we think, and with a little shift in how we lay out our day, we too will be able to exploit the benefits of a well-planned and intentional morning.
