Good day tay!
I lived a long time in my adult life without a lot of money. Working part time got me just enough money to make it through the month and occasionally buy something extra. With that in mind I’ve felt like I have been pretty good at handling money, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it.
This feels different however now when I work full time and can afford more things. I feel like I buy too much of certain things. Like for examples fast food, beer, and games. None of it to an extent that I would say I have a problem but it does drain me financially.
If any of this is an actual problem. I’m not even sure about that. Like it’s not like I am ruined, I’ve been able to save some money every month to do things like traveling. It’s just that I feel like I could save more. The problem might just as well be that I think too much about money, because when you had little of it you had to count every penny. Perhaps I should let myself spoil myself when I can. Enjoy the present a bit more rather than thinking of things I could do to save money. I’m not sure about that one.
Except buying that blender, that was a mistake.
Here are some suggested topics for today:
- Do you feel like you are good at handling money?
- What do you buy too much of?
- What would you buy right now if you could afford it?
- Or talk about anything.
