Do you find yourself spending money that you haven’t received yet, or buying on credit to look good? Or you just find it really hard to save? Adesua Etomi has some spending rules that can help you take some financial control.
She tweeted her spending rules, which she says has saved her many times.
My spending rules… ‘Save before you spend’ ‘Don’t spend money on more ‘wants’ than ‘needs’ ‘Don’t spend money that hasn’t hit your account yet’ ‘Don’t buy things on credit’ ‘Don’t buy things to impress anyone, it’s foolish’
I know people that spend money that hasn’t hit their account yet. : I’m expecting 50k in 5 days. 5k for lashes. 5k for ‘fixing’. 10k for bag. The jeans Yinka was selling, 10k..let me buy it on credit. Shoe 7k. Ah..my nails 4k. 9k left. Ah. Food nko? It’s k, I’ll get 20k in 6 days
Being great at Saving money has saved my life MANY times. It’ll pinch you when you’re putting the money aside oh but trust me when I say you’ll be glad you did.
