Taming the Trolley: Part 5

5. Tomorrow is Another Day
When coming across sales and expenses, always remember that tomorrow is another day. In simple words, remember that even though the bargain seems irresistible, there will be necessities to take care off, tomorrow.

Of course, we shouldn’t be miserly in our approach. The trick is to be wise rather than miserly. Here are few times that we might forget about tomorrow…

Allowing others to dictate your spending
Peer pressure is a powerful force, it's why so many people participate in gift exchanges or baby showers or wedding showers ...when they otherwise would want nothing to do with it.

Less visible but likely more pervasive, how about going out to lunch with co-workers? It would seem like not a big deal, but it is if you're only going out because they are and you want to seem like a "team player."

Wise people understand that they are responsible for their own savings, and so they should be responsible for where they are spending. Don't allow others, through peer pressure, to spend your money.

If you go out with friends or family to the mall and they all purchased something at a sale, it is not necessary for you to make a purchase if nothing interests you. The people with you might encourage you but keep in mind that it is your money and next month’s rent is your duty, not theirs. read more

Even though the toddler was having a furious tantrum, his mom was unfazed. “You may as well give up on the crying,” I heard her say as she led him to the store exit. “You’re stuck with me for 18 years.”
