The majority of people I know are very bad with money and always flat broke even though they work
I notice most people seem to think I am wealthy even though I am not and they wonder how come I always have money in my pocket. I don’t do anything special, I just don’t spend money on things I don’t need.
For instance, pretty much EVERY person I know has Sky/cable TV and a huge expensive package containing TV channels they NEVER watch. They keep the same deal for years when they could get rid of some of the channels they don’t use or just get rid of the TV altogether and have a cheaper package that just has internet. They won’t do it though.
Everyone I know is subscribed to Netflix and Spotify. They don’t have time to buy and listen to music because of their work and they rarely ever use the Netflix either, yet they pay every month for them. You can also get music off Youtube and just convert it to mp3 without the cost. Same thing with films and documentaries.
Most people are on the most expensive monthly phone package because they want the LATEST upgraded smart phone. If they kept the same Iphone for 3 or 4 years and then upgraded it would work out cheaper but most just do whatever the phone company “advises” them to do and end up with a huge bill every month.
If a new pair of Nike footwear comes out people will rush to the shops to get it INSTANTLY so they can put them on Instagram. Wait 2 weeks and they are reduced in price or in some kind of mass sale.
Holidays also. I have seen women drop 2 paychecks on a holiday, put the photos all over social media and then when they return they don’t even have any money for petrol to get their car to work and back.
I mean I could go on and on.
Are people you know like this?
