In this article, you will learn how to save money in today’s economy.

If you want to save more money, you need to make more money and don’t live above your means. That sounds very simple, but people usually don’t heed this advice. It is not your fault that big corporations spend millions of dollars every year to advertise a product to you so that you buy it.

This advice is not meant to deprive you of living the life you want; this is to help you become more selective with where you choose to spend your money.

Here is what you can do to help you save more money:

1-Unsubscribe from marketing emails such as clothing or makeup. Buy clothes and cosmetics or other necessities when you think you need them.

2-Incorporate the seven-day rule for buying an item. Think about what you need to buy for a few days to determine whether you really need it or are just making an impulse purchase.

3-Incorporate a delayed gratification mindset into your life and don’t upgrade your car or buy designer clothes every time you get a promotion.

4-Think about the long-term goals and how you could invest the money you have now for better future purchases or investments. Divide your long-term goals into small steps and get closer to your destination by taking these smaller steps.

5-Before you make a big purchase think about how many hours you have to work to make that money back?
