The truth is that we all know the feeling of buying something when we have a bad day and it suddenly changes our mood in a positive one. But this is not what we really need, especially when we want to save some money for other important things, don’t you think? However, it does not mean that we just satisfied one of our needs when we make these purchases, but we are just victims of aggressive marketing strategies that manipulate us to buy constantly. 

Of course, if you are in the month of discounts and you find some things that you really need or you want something from the bottom of your heart, then it is fine to use some of your money from time to time.

There are many motivational speakers or personal development and self-improvement books that will help you with managing your money and become more disciplined in this regard. But sometimes it is quite difficult to resist the temptation and we forget about keeping a constant line of expenses. 

Some motivational experts and psychologists recommend you, in the process of saving money, to have a piggy bank intended to buy the things you like, but you do not really need because in this way you will be more motivated to save money and you will be happier with your income. 

Anyway, if you want to save more money than you did before, all you have to do is to become a more intentional consumer and to learn how to give up on buying useless things that you do not really need. This subject involves a complex discussion and the list of things that you should not buy at all is large. But you are the only one who knows very well what kind of person you are and your needs, so the change begins with you!

The common strategy in malls is the lack of windows, watches and the implementation of strong lights so that you cannot see when the time flies. So, pay attention to the details and be more careful with managing your income. Read on for more!
