The Diary of a Budgeter – Day 30

Money Simplified

How do you get out of debt?
Stop spending more than you have and pay what you owe.

How do you save money?
Don’t spend it.

How do you make more money?
Get a better paying job.

It all sounds so simple. And, at the basic level, it is. Too bad we’re human! We want the instant gratification that comes from the “buy now, pay later” model. We want a great deal, but we still want to spend! We want to make more money, but we’re afraid to ask for a raise or find a new job.

What do all these things have in common? They are within our control, if only we’ll take it! We have the power to get out of debt. We have the power to save money and hit any financial goal we can imagine. We have the power to make more money!

The question is, do we have the WILL power? Are these things important enough for us to do what it takes to accomplish them? The strategies are out there, the plans are out there. We can find endless suggestions from people who have already achieved all these goals. So it IS possible!

Do you want it bad enough? That is the question – and only YOU have the answer!
