Making ends meet through carefully planned and wise spending

Published November 4, 2016

Today, despite working so hard in our different jobs, it always seems that we cannot make our ends meet. There always seems to be something that we have to forego and compromise in favor of more important things.

As it is we are therefore having to live lives that are not as comfortable as we would want them to be. For example, we are having to settle for clothes, shoes, or jewelry that is of lower quality than we would actually want. Although these things are not very important for our survival, they are very instrumental in helping us live life to the full. If possible, we should do all that we can to ensure that we live our lives to the full.

Since we usually have very little that we can do about our jobs and the salaries that we get, we should therefore look at other avenues of influencing our purchasing power. One of the ways of doing this is looking for other extra income generating ventures that do not conflict with our current jobs. This can however be difficult to get and to manage especially due to the many hours that we dedicate to our full time jobs.

The other option is to manage our spending better. With the same money that we are earning from our jobs, we try and streamline our spending to ensure that we do not spend any unnecessary money. This does not necessarily mean compromising on the quality of what we spend on. Many times we spend a lot of money on expensive items ignorant of other similar or superior products that come at a lower cost.

For example, in our houses, there are many appliances and facilities that we depend on for daily uses. These appliances and gadgets usually accumulate very high costs at the end of the billing cycle due to their frequent use. The water heaters are a good example of this. A water heater fixed on a water tank usually uses up a lot of electricity heating water that will not be used or water that will not be used immediately. Such water will cool down after some time and will need to be reheated again. This is a lot of wasted resources.

By searching online, one can find electric tankless water heater reviews that promise systems that will help one save a lot of money. This money can be directed towards the purchase of other important items.

In many instances we also buy things that are expensive while a less expensive similar item will work just the same. For example, one may buy a huge dishwasher so as to have something impressive to show off to friends. In many instances a small dishwasher would be just as convenient in washing all the dishes used in the house. Instead of spending to show off, we can spend on less costly items and have some money left to buy other things that will make our lives better.
