Minimalist and/or economical living is going to help you keep your bank account from depleting as fast as it would if you weren’t paying attention to your spending habits.
Since prices have gone up it’s going to be very smart of you to find areas where you can save money. No matter your income level, the more money that you are able to put to the side the less stressful life is.
Last week I ordered a 16 ounce bottle of Aloe Vera Juice from Amazon for $8.33. Today while shopping at Walmart I noticed a 128 ounce (1 gallon) bottle of Aloe Vera Juice for $6.59. It’s obvious that the larger container was a better deal but seeing such a big difference in quantity made me think of how much more I pay attention to pricing.
Aloe Vera is a staple in the body care products that I make and I recently decided that I’m going to make all of my products by 2023. By making my own products I’m controlling my wealth even more.
See, as prices have increased many have had to make the choice of buying one thing over another. If you grew up less fortunate the current state of the economy may have been easier for you to adjust to. But if you are like millions of Americans who had to change their spending habits for the first time in life budgeting can be a challenge.
For me, personally, I am navigating this new way of living strategically and will continue living comfortably, as well as stress free.
Today I had a conversation with a New York client and I had to explain to him that just because he has the financial reserves (savings) that does not mean that he should be buying everything simply because he can afford it.
I explained to him that 2023 is going to make or break a lot of people. And if he wants to remain in the position he is in 5 years from now he is going to have make even smarter moves with his money.
Things have changed and nothing is going back to the way it was. It’s about pivoting for survival and leaders in business (and government) know this.
Las Vegas was known as a cheap place for entertainment and retirement. It’s not inexpensive anymore. 1. There is no rent control. 2. Every major sports league is about to have a team here. Two very important factors to consider.
If you live here, you are going to have to be very creative to be successful. If you are considering moving here, you are going to need a decent income to thrive.
