Investing My Money 03



I am one of​ those individuals that were never really any good at​ saving .​
You know how this can be; especially when you're young .​
Chances are you always want something new .​
The heck with investing my money or​ sticking it​ in​ some savings account .​
I​ wanted to​ spend,​ spend,​ spend .​
To be totally honest,​ nothing has really changed as​ far as​ that desire goes .​
However,​ I​ have slowed down the​ whole spending craze .​
As we​ all know,​ once you hit adulthood,​ reality starts to​ settle in​ .​
By this time you have bills and credit card debt to​ grapple with .​
The last thing you should be thinking about doing is​ blowing your cash on​ some lame new toy or​ gadget .​
There is​ a​ trick to​ investing .​
It's called will power .​
Okay,​ that may just be my personal take on​ the​ concept,​ but I​ would imagine some folks agree with me .​
They even make commercials regarding this very issue .​
I​ recall one that depicted a​ woman standing in​ her kitchen and watching television .​
An ad came on​ and revealed something she wanted to​ purchase .​
She immediately turned to​ her freezer and pulled out a​ block of​ ice .​
Apparently her credit card was in​ the​ middle and she had to​ get it​ out to​ place an​ order .​
Then she gave up and put the​ card back .​
I​ wouldn't be surprised if​ some folks go to​ these lengths to​ prevent their credit card charging .​
It's not a​ terrible idea .​
I​ know I​ should focus more on​ investing my money,​ and not spending it​ on​ lattes and food products .​
This is​ probably my greatest weakness .​
I​ love to​ eat and I​ love to​ drink java even more .​
The plus side is​ I​ have a​ super fast metabolism .​
The down-side concerns wasted income .​
We all waste too much money on​ daily routines such as​ grabbing a​ burger,​ when we​ really could have simply packed lunch .​
Or maybe we'll get a​ frappuccino,​ when we​ could have just made a​ cup of​ coffee ourselves .​
Although it​ is​ difficult at​ times,​ I​ must remain adamant about investing my money .​
You should do the​ same .​
Don't fall victim to​ that fast food craving or​ that cool new gadget on​ television .​
Put that extra cash away in​ a​ savings account for the​ future .​
Or,​ you could test the​ stock waters .​
I​ began investing my money in​ some stocks a​ couple years back and it's panned out rather well .​
Just don't spend,​ spend,​ spend .​
