How I Decided to Adopt Rich People’s Habits and How It Changed My Life

It is known that many rich and successful people don’t spend their money on useless things and they control their expenses. To follow their example, I decided to track my expenses.

How I Decided to Adopt Rich People’s Habits and How It Changed My Life

I added all the things that I bought every day to the list so I could tell what I spent my money on. I realized that it was much cheaper to buy food for the entire week.

I had a different strategy for bigger purchases. Every time I wanted to buy something, I asked myself this question, “Will this thing be useful? Will it make me better?” And if the answer was “Yes”, then I put the thing on the list of future purchases. 2 weeks later, I returned to the list, and if I still wanted to buy the thing, I bought it. But often, it was just a short-term wish.

So, during the first month, I saved 40% of my salary, and during the second — almost 60%.
