It's easy to get caught up in the idea that money can't buy you everything, but I disagree. Money is required for most things in life and if you don't have any, then you will find it hard to live.
Money is a part of life that everyone needs (just like water and food). It's not the be all end all of life, however it can help you achieve things and enjoy your day to days more than without money.
If you're looking for ways to make or save money, this blog post should have some helpful tips. I'll cover topics like budgeting, saving, investing and making extra income.
Before you read any further it is important to establish a "lingo" for us to communicate in so that there are no misunderstandings as our understanding unfolds.
...budgeting? for myself it's a way to organize and plan for spending. There are many different types of budgets: monthly, quarterly or yearly budget which might include allocating income (such as salary) throughout various categories like groceries/food, leisure activities, one-time expenses (such as purchasing a home), savings goals (for emergency funds) or even tithe -giving back 10% percentage of earnings from God's blessing!
...saving? Saving money is the idea of not spending saved cash. Saved cash can be deposited into your savings account (that i don't advise ) or funds are being invested into stocks or real estate long-term ( making your savings work for you #growth).
... investing? Investing money means making more money! Investing is a great way to save for retirement or a means for extra income.
... making extra income? Creating financial opportunities for yourself by using your skills ( or being creative like flipping furniture ) to earn extra money.
Ok! now let's talk about -
Why Money can't buy you everything in life but you need money to buy everything
1. Money can't buy you happiness, but it sure helps. 2. Money doesn't have feelings.
While there are many things that money cannot buy - like love and respect - we all know how difficult life without could be. You need to have a certain amount of monthly income in order to get by these days. If you think about it logically, then having more money would help us do more of what we want with our lives and not just be stuck living paycheck-to-paycheck!
1. Save money on groceries by shopping at discount stores like Costco
