Your habits might be contributing to your overspending and you probably don’t even know it yet. Be it early morning coffee runs or splurging on shoes.
I think we’re all at an age where we should be very conscious and aware of how and where we spend our money, just to keep track and save up.
I’m pretty sure you’re guilty of this. Eating out has become a lifestyle especially if you’re working in Dubai. You end up ordering food at work or even when you’re staying in. Planning out your meals will not only help you save up but will also allow you to eat clean.
This is very tempting and I’m guilty of it too, but start shopping during sales. I’ve started doing that and you end up finding super great deals and you don’t even feel bad about splurging.
You will not believe how much you spend every month on getting coffee before starting your day, what’s the big deallllll? Just make some at home and have it on your way to work. I give a lot of shit to one of my friends who always spends on coffee EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!
Have an authentic lifestyle
We live in a world where we’re exposed to everyone else’s lifestyle thanks to Instagram. So there’s a lot of ‘oh I need to get that bag because someone spoke about it’, get things that you GENUINELY need. Don’t invest in things just because someone else has them. Buy what you want and what you need. Buy if it makes sense to you, not because someone else has it.
The internet can make us believe that we need to spend a lot to have a life worth living, but that’s not true. In reality, you don’t need A-LOT to be happy! Sometimes less is more! So be mindful of how you want to live your life.
