Comfort is the enemy of progress. You sometimes have to go outside your norm, maybe become a little uncomfortable, to achieve your goals. That’s why we came up with these 17 semi-hard and creative ways to keep your money to yourself.

Listen on Queer Money:

Sometimes too much is too much

Most of us have more than we need and don’t even realize it. How many articles of clothing do you have in your closet that still have their tags? Did you just book another vacation that you’ll pay off when you get home? When was the last time you went to that gym you pay for each month?

We’re on constant defense against marketing and consumerism. Try watching Minimalism: A Documentary about the Important Things and tell us you don’t agree. Because of this, we spend our money in ways and on things we don’t need. That’s why this list isn’t 17 hard ways to keep your money.

  1. I wanted to type “I hate consumerism” but then deleted the sentence. I don’t actually hate it, I simply disagree with it 😀

    There are so many areas we could save money, it’s crazy! Yet so many struggle with debt and money problems because of paying for what they want rather than what they need.

    1. Completely agree with you there. The struggle with need vs. want is one of the battles we all must wage. Those that are able to win more of then than not are then able to put the extra money to work and get more of what they need and then some of the wants. 😉
