I need to start off with the disclaimer that I am not actually filthy rich. I don’t even think that I would want to be.
Sure, rolling around in giant piles of dollar bills would be fun at first. Buying caviar and Wagyu beef might give me a kick for a while as well. However, I think I would eventually end up hating being so rich that I could bathe in the finest champagne and buy my own islands.
Getting things for less money than they are worth sounds like a great way of spending less, doesn’t it?
We might pick up the odd bargain from time to time but if you want to spend less on a regular basis then perhaps it is time to work out whether you have haggling skills you could put to good use.
There are a lot of factors to take into account when considering whether or not you have chosen the right career.
If you think only of the financial side of things then you might earn good money but at some point you could find that you are bored of your job and looking for a change. On the other hand, if you just want to have a fun job then it might not give you the financial rewards you need in the long term. So how will you work out whether or not you have made the right choice?
We all know deep down that investing is something we should do. After all, this is the only way other than working that most of us are going to earn money during our lives.
If we decide not to ever invest money then we miss out on a huge possibility to multiply our earnings. So, it is worth considering what it is that stops people from investing and trying to make more money.

Having lived a frugal lifestyle for quite a while now, there are lots of ways to save money that I have learned about in that time. The way I view money is that that every dollar I have now is a dollar less that I need to get me to retirement, and so that has lead to some internal reflection on what I want out of life and how I can best get there.
