Change The Way You Save (Money Talk Friday) | IAAC 260th



Yipee! The weekend is almost upon us. I still have work today, and it will be a busy one. Before I clocked out for the day, I printed fourteen PO's waiting to be prepared. Oh boy!

So, it's time again for Money Talk Friday. Yes, it's getting to be a habit. I'm actually working on being comfortable when I talk about money. That way I'll keep attracting some my way. 😂🤣 I'm sharing some tips that I have read on my latest journal. The good part is I'm already practising most, if not all, of the pointers. However, it does take time to accumulate wealth esp if it's done the honest to goodness way. 😉👍🏼

To date, minimizing expenses seems to be my biggest challenge. There's inflation and the rising cost of living. Counter that with no salary increase and you pretty much get an idea of how challenging it is. So, the best way to cope is to seek more income sources. Thankfully, the Internet is 24/7 and there are numerous opportunities waiting to be discovered. I'm definitely willing as much as my free time allows it.

Then, of course, remember to save..save..save! No amount of increased earnings will help if you spend more than you earn. 🤓🤓

Ahhh BTC is again at an ATH and seems to be breaking barriers. HODL if you can. In my case, it will help me pay some bills. For that, I am truly thankful.

It's gonna be my weekend after work tomorrow, so I'll work on other stuff. Plus, I do have a meeting in the evening via Zoom. I hope it works well. I believe I have set it up on the laptop already. I'll see you for my next video. Ta-tah!

hello dear friend @iamraincrystal good afternoon
You are very right in saying that making money honestly costs a lot, it reduces costs and finding new income is the most important challenge to face the times in which we live.

I take this opportunity to wish you a splendid weekend

No amount of increased earnings will help if you spend more than you earn. 🤓🤓

That's the basic rules we need to keep in mind. The same thing is applied for exercise and dieting, in a different way. If the total energy consumption in a day exceed the total energy expenditure, one will gain weight despite dieting and exercise 😁😁

Wow! @hafiz34 really, although I don't know much about exercise but I know for sure that too much of what is good is not good.

Hello @iamraincrystal
Congratulations on being the spotlight today.
I totally agree on “decreasing the spending“ to increase savings and we are all experiencing it. Beside all the negatives about pandemic one thing which is positive is we are able to reduce the expenses 👍

somehow one valuable lesson during the pandemic is it highlighted the must have (necessities) vs the non essentials :) I do hope many folks learn their lessons well :)

Hello, @iamraincrystal thanks for bringing this to our notice, it's really not advisable to spend more than one saves but as you've dictated inflation can also lead to it therefore having more than one source of income really comes in handy for one to remain financially buoyant.

so true! Gone are the days when being employed guarantees financial security. Seems nothing is guaranteed anymore and we need to look out for ourselves too :)

Saving can’t be overemphasize. It’s a habit we all need to cultivate. Inflation everywhere and cost of living is shooting up. I guess they sent a memo to btc to enjoy up too. I have none of that, so waiting for hive to do same. Take care and stay safe.

I'm a crypto newbie too. Mostly I play it by ear :) It's a good thing I'm used to having multiple income sources so it has become a habit too. It's good to start teaching young children to learn to save at an early age. :)

Hopefully, I will have multiple sources of income soon

hi @iamraincrystal, thanks for the tips.
Yes, internet is 24/7 and a good way to find ways to earn. But people should also be aware that it is full of scams, which you may fall easily.
I had my share of them over the years.

And yes, every penny saved, helps.

Finally, I hope you had a good zoom meeting.

take care and enjoy your weekend.

thank you @imfarhad 🙌🏼🙌🏼 well, thankfully, I've been online for a good number of years 😉👍🏼 and when something is too good to be true, chances are it is 😝😝 it truly pays to be careful and wary as well.

Thanks for sharing the valuable tips @iamraincrystal
I always believe in saving and my husband is very happy that i did very less shopping in last few months because of lockdown.
That's one positive impact of covid i think.
