I appreciate advice like this and I’m sure it’s useful for some people, but could we maybe have some advice geared toward people who don’t already make purchases like this? It’s not that I don’t have the disposable income to be able to buy these things (although I’m sure that’s the case for some people) – I just choose not to buy them because I’m not interested in them and I’ve always been pretty careful with money. I’m looking for tips for people who want smarter ways to spend the money they have, not lists of expensive things that not everyone has the privilege or desire to purchase in the first place. I’m getting the feeling that this channel is aimed at people who were never taught healthy spending habits and budgeting, but it’s not very helpful for people who already have those skills and want to go further.

When I was a kid, I noticed that I’d get the worst stomachache before school whenever I ate breakfast. Consequently, I stopped eating breakfast, and I still prefer to skip breakfast. I later learned that I’m a celiac, and I often wonder if my past morning stomachaches were related to that condition. Most breakfast foods are centered around bread…. However, sometimes a warm bowl of soup tastes really good for breakfast on cold mornings. Soup has become my favorite morning food I decide to have breakfast. ^_^ Anyway…I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes to skip breakfast. I have also been lectured a lot about how dangerous and bad people think it is to skip the “most important meal of the day.”

Makeup, skincare and clothes. My collections of all of these products are exactly where I want them and I only buy replacements. I don’t try new things anymore because I only have what i use and I know works for me already.

these ideas are so irrelevant for people without a sizable disposable income.

🙁 I thought I was going to learn budget tips but instead I got rude hairstyle comments, irresponsible advice to skip meals without a warning about the risk of under-eating and developing unhealthy attitudes to food, and an anecdote about animal fur clothing…

A tip that I use is to not be afraid to return something you don’t love and to keep items in returnable condition until you’re sure you love it. That way, if you realize you’ve made an impulsive mistake, you can get your money back. Sephora takes returns on pretty much anything in any condition!

If you had to cut this stuff from your budget to save money, you’ve clearly never had to actually be good with money. This shit is obvious to anyone who is or has ever been poor.

I used to impulse buy lots of books, so I took my credit card off Amazon & subscribed to the public library on top of my university library, I also stopped using my Kindle and I now have a rule that I’m not allowed to buy a book unless I already read it & or it’s a reference book for long term use. clothes – that’s another long story! found the best way to not buy unwanted clothes is to just buy 1 or 2 items at a time. going out – discovered walks & free exhibits & shows are just as fun & more healthy than going to a restaurant.
