“Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving”
At the bus stop today I decided not to front the fare. I walked instead.
On the way I smelt coffee and considered buying a newspaper and a brew, but I kept walking.
In a window I saw some nice shoes at a really great price. I was tempted to splurge on them and affordability wasn’t really a problem, but instead I strolled on.
At lunchtime the day was overcast and a little cold. I considered going into a warm cafe and buying lunch. Instead I put on a coat and ate my prepacked potato salad in the park while I read a chapter of my book.
I didn’t spend on a whim today. Truth be told I wasn’t even tempted. I have committed every dollar available to a single result. Through the earnings I get from saving and investment I don’t have to work for somebody.
Coffee or work? Easy choice in my case.
