Personal Finance: Practical Ways to Save Money By Spending More

The quality of life of a smart spender is gauged on how money is spent wisely to make his life comfortable, happy and productive, and a miser may end up being rich but tired, sick and miserable. People have different ways of saving money but sometimes we don’t even realize that we are overworked, stressed and sick, and we even unknowingly deprive ourselves of the best things in life like quality time with the family, building new and lasting memories, and spending time taking care of yourself by relaxing, enjoying your “me” time or eating nutritious food. Is it possible to spend money and save money at the same time? Yes, it is possible.

You can hire some help or outsource some of your heavy household chores. Time is as valuable as your money, so if your hourly income is more than what you have to pay for someone else to mow your lawn, clean the house, or walk your dog, then hiring someone to help you really makes financial sense. Grocery delivery is increasingly becoming popular in order to avoid new long check out lines, get a well-wrapped and well-packed fruits and vegetables, and shop in the convenience of your own home can save you time and effort, which can be used for more important things you need to do. You can increase your quality of life by outsourcing because the time saved can be used as a time for relaxation after a long and busy day at work, spend time helping your kids do their homework, brainstorm new investment ideas, write your blog or time spent nourishing your spiritual life like attending a bible study or prayer meeting.

Purchasing high-quality tools and equipment for home use is also a good idea of saving money in the future, fixing your leaky drain and other home repair issues faster and better. When it comes to home appliances or electrical items, they always have a newer version or latest model every year, so it is best to purchase not the most expensive one nor the cheapest one either, instead focus on your needs and buy one that is perfect for your lifestyle. Dress yourself for excellence and success so that you can build your confidence in presenting your proposition and eventually get that dream position you long been wanting for.

When it comes to family vacations, sporting events or concerts, paying extra to upgrade your seats or modest hotel accommodation can be worth it, but it doesn’t mean that you splurge for VIP passes or get the best suite just to enjoy to the fullest. Attending seminars to acquire new skills, share your ideas and increase your knowledge is very important in order to continuously educate yourself, find new interests and hobbies in life, and to gain new experiences you can share with others.
