Do you think it’s hard to save $3000 in 6 months on a low income?
Saving money can be a difficult task and that isn’t completely our faults. Large corporations and their marketing departments are attempting to make spending money as easy and painless as possible, ultimately giving us a sort of high.
Also, using plastic (credit or debit cards) to purchase items is painless because with paper money, you hand over one amount and get less in return.
With plastic, you hand over your card and get your card back, eliminating the immediate trigger of pain relating to loss.
Now certainly there are some of our own habits that contribute to a savings shortfall, such as fast food eating and vending machine buying.
These need to be curbed or eliminated to boost saving potential.
