Even with a lot of money or a less amount of money, it is still hard to live below our means. Is it possible to enjoy things even on a small budget? Read on and find out how:
EAT LIKE A KING EVEN ON A BUDGET
If not a gadget, one thing that eats up our monthly budget is food. We cannot leave without it. Food is a basic necessity. And, who doesn’t want to eat like a royal? All of us want it at some point. But you don’t have to spend like a royal to eat like a royal. Use the internet.
Search for recipes of your favorite food and cook it at home. Learn how to replace expensive ingredients with the cheaper ones. In this way, you’ll have the same satisfaction for a lesser price.
TRAVEL ON A BUDGET
Because of a luxurious travel, lifestyle enthusiast warns us: travel now and be broke later. You don’t have to spend lavishly just to enjoy the perks of traveling. Find a friend or relative at your area of destination. You can just share with the house and give your share of expenses. You’ll feel more comfortable and have a chance of bonding with old friends or distant relatives.
Or if you really want to travel out of the country, be a backpacker, and be friends with a backpacker. Nothing is more enjoyable than traveling with a companion. You can explore cheaper room rates and cheaper airline rates.
FASHION ON A BUDGET
Another thing that consumes our budget is our idea of fashion. Our clothes need to be expensive so we don’t run out of style. There are so many choices of clothes out there for half the price. Also, learn to mix and match. Every time you have the “itch” for shopping, STOP.
Check out your closet and see what you can do with the clothes that you already have. Keep in mind, it’s not the brand, it’s the attitude.
BUDGET-FRIENDLY INTERIOR DESIGN
Having classy furniture and another house décor is among other things we want to spend on. But, keep your wallet and look at your surroundings. Use your imagination and creative side. Can you paint? Can you create something out of wood chunks or wood shavings? What about the recyclable materials around you. Check out these homemade crafts that you can try.
GIVE LIKE YOU ARE RICH AND GIVE YOUR TITHE
What do you usually say when someone asked you for financial help, what do you usually say? Sorry, I have no money? Or do you give that person even a small amount? What about tithing? Are you fulfilling your religious obligation to tithe? Helping others and giving your tithe helps you to be disciplined.
Also, it will help you to feel better and appreciate the blessings that come into your life.
