Week 4: Start Your Conscious Spending Plan

Use a tracking tool to see where your money is going. (e.g. Mint) Don’t just go and “create a budget”.

Choose the things you love enough to spend on— and then cut costs on the things you don’t love. This leads to a happy, rich life, not living a life of frugality for no reason.

Think about your goals. Ask yourself if you’d rather spend $10 on lunch or save $10 toward a house or a car. If you would rather spend the money on lunch, enjoy lunch! You save money so that you can spend it later on the things that make you happy.
