Saving money is not easy! There is always something that needs to be paid, a friend to go out with, or a gift to buy (even if it’s for yourself). But if you stay strong and you stick to your decision for a healthier financial lifestyle, in the long run, you’ll be better off.
We’ve done some digging and found the seven stages you go through when you save. Have a look and let us know if you identify or what you would add.
1. The decision.
You’re an adult now and need to start living more financially responsible.
2. The plan
You’ve done the research and the recon – you are ready for this.
3. The first paycheck
You get your first salary after you’ve made your plan and you are careful not to bite into your savings.
Everywhere you turn, you see things you want.
But not today. Not you. You have a plan, and you will not give into mere temptations.
You’ve come to terms that you’ll need to make sacrifices in order to succeed.
You made it! You’ve reached your savings goal and you are still alive.
