Live Below Your Means


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

It's not always fun, but it is wise to live below your means. When you start looking at what you truly need vs. want in life, I promise you will find that you don't need the premium cable package, the designer clothes/accessories, the luxury vehicle, the latest technology, or even the daily Starbucks run. My generation especially seems to have an "entitlement" complex, which isn't reality. Be honest with yourself, find your inner peace, and it will provide for a much happier future.

    I completely agree, but at the same time, I really, really need the daily Starbucks run.

    it is so true! I am a minimalist and I used to be a packrat and I feel so much freer and happier with LESS stuff!
