The relationship between time and money is this: When you spend less, you can work less. That means that frugality buys time. On a deeper level, frugality buys freedom - financial freedom, freedom from worry, freedom to spend your time as you wish.
There's a balance, and it is different for everyone. You have to decide how much time you're willing to spend on the present comfort and how much you want to put away for the future.
Experimental studies reveal that using your money on time-saving devices promotes happiness. The effects of "buying time" have the greatest impact on less-affluent individuals.
If you don't want to cut back on your lifestyle or are not able to cut back, you can still use the relationship between time and money to increase your sense of well-being.
When we notice the relationship between money and time, we realise that wealth isn't necessarily an abundance of money, but an abundance of time. When you gather a lot of money, you collect a large store of time which you can use as you want.
Financial independence is then geared to having saved enough, so you're no longer required to work for money. Yet, many people spend so much time gathering stuff but don't set aside anything for the future.
An irony of modern society is that many people work more to have more money to buy more stuff, but because they have so much stuff, they need more money, which means they have to work more, which means they have less time. To escape this vicious cycle:
We're commonly told that money is a "store of value," meaning a storehouse of past effort to use for future purchases. Really, money is a store of (productive) time.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
