MY PERSONAL MONEY SAVINGS TIPS

AS I mentioned some posts ago I'm a little bit obsessed with real estate field and I have also a love for home decor, however my financial life still doesn't permit me to afford everything I like...I am always a woman on a budget!!!

I plan my budget weekly and I became quiet good on grocery, fashion and also with books-apart books I've bought for my birthday I limited to window shopping also on bookshop- I have a folder with pictures of thousands of things that I like, but then I like to looking for similar but low cost version.


During this past week I spent a lot of times studying, reading, cooking and doing personal accountancy, plus I organized all financial documents for the taxes declarations of my parents... plus I spent quality time with friends, with true friends isn't necessary spend money, with sun and warm temperature is really good do long walks surrounded by nature and talking...

However have a budget to respect is really stressful sometimes, love/hate relation with budget continues, but I know that I have importsnt financial goals to achieve and my work, savings and busy week end will help me to achieve goals, but since I have a budget I noticed that if you have a goals or more goals is more easy to stay focused, write daily your expenses and monthly control how much do you spend for your utilities, will help during financial control and areas where you overspent and do spending review!!!

I must to admit that I am a little bit envy about holiday plans of some friends of mine, while probably I'll do a stay cation, but luckily my hometown offers several free events for summer...I must to confess that with stay cation last years I discovered some hidden secrets and pleasant places...

Yesterday evening I controlled all my bills and expenses and I must to say that I am quiet happy because I followed the budget, Ididn't overspent and into my wallet there are still money- yep I had temptation to spend but I ask to myself if that expenses were really necessary- I didn't so they didn't, I limited a lot doing window shopping!!!

When I am alone at home I like to read, take time for snail mail, discovere new tv program and last that I've discovered is LOVE IT OR LIST IT it is so fun!!!

However this morning I was talking with a friend of mine and she asked what helps me to keep budget in different areas:
 
Whats my parents teached me
  • keep all receipts and take notes of daily purchases
  • eat out less as possible
  • plan happy hour low cost
  • go to cinema only into the week, like tue or we but stay away during week end, it cuts cost of 40/50% every time
  • Plan shopping, visit shops take notes about items and prices and then decide what you really need
  • Use cash most times is possible, with credit card is really simple spent a fortune
  • Honestly for credit card and to be more secure I choose a prepaid card, so you know the max amount you can deposit and hen it finish you can't spend more, and no interests to pay!!!
I'm not a person that works into financial field, but now that I am a woman with great projects I put more attention, like a lot of people that must pay bills monthly- and I must to admit that my parents are a true inspiration, me and my brother now work but for long time we're been a one income family, but we don't missed nothing...

Which are your way to save money on daily life?

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

HAPPY MIND

Qualche mese fa entrando in libreria ho notato un sacco di libri dedicati allo stile "felice" del Nord Europa, ho voluto sfogliare un libro Hygge, ma ammetto di NON averlo voluto comprare anche perchè è già da un pò che ho deciso di voler guardare il bicchiere mezzo pieno ed ho fatto mia la frase " un sorriso costa meno dell'elettricità ma fa altrettanta luce"  ma volendo cercare sul web alla parola mindfulness ecco cosa si trova: Mindfulness è la traduzione di "sati" che in lingua pali, il linguaggio utilizzato dal Buddha per i suoi insegnamenti, significa essenzialmente consapevolezzaattenzione, attenzione sollecita. Queste qualità dell'essere possono venire coltivate attraverso la meditazione. Nella tradizione buddhista la samma sati (retta consapevolezza) è una delle vie del Nobile Ottuplice Sentiero, l'ultima delle Quattro Nobili Verità. La moderna mindfulness è una tecnica psicologica basata su questa e altre tradizioni meditative. Desc…

SANREMO SECONDA SERATA: PARLIAMO DI LOOK

Qest'anno ho deciso di guardarlo ma arrivo ad un certo punto ed il sonno vince però con rai replay vedo quello che mi sono persa e in alcuni casi devo dire meno male...
Iniziamo a parlare del look di Carlo Conti e la scelta migliore rispetto alla prima sera, oddio qualunque giacca scura sarebbe stata meglio di quella "da vecchio" della prima sera....comunque si inizia con le nuove proposte e lo devo dire ho una profonda invidia per i capelli di Marianne Mirage, che ha scelto un look molto bello ed elegante, la canzone è anche molto bella e secondo me avrà successo (e prima l'hanno passata in radio un paio di volte), Francesco Guasti e ok lo devo dire io ho un debole per gli uomini con la barbetta ma qui si esagera però il look non mi dispiace per niente e la canzone...si mi è piaciuta, gran bel timbro vocale il ragazzo, il terzo ad esibirsi è Braschi, giovane carino con la faccia da bravo ragazzo, canzone carina ed orecchiabile ma se devo dire se mi è piaciuta o meno,…
