Happiness And Where To Get It!

Ever see happy people and wonder what the hell they are so happy about?

I’ll tell you because I feel like this about 85% of the time now.

I work towards simplicity of thought and feeling. I work towards the simplicity of everyday living and of course that includes getting rid of unnecessary expenses.

Watch “Best No Spend Tip For Any Month Of The Year!” On YouTube

With many people doing a no spend month of November for obvious reasons that Christmas is on the way.

I have tried in my 2 + year journey towards debt freedom to adopt a more permanent way of staying out of debt and staying away from consumerism.

As with so many things in my life, I have found that the simplest of answers is usually the one I favor and the one that works the best for me.

I stole this way of doing it from a good friend of mine who I noticed never had too much in her home.

You know that person, who has a warmly furnished place, but not too many things and all done tastefully and without clutter.

I asked her what was her secret and she replied that she is also tempted to buy many things but refuses to be swayed by it unless she has a permanent home designated for it before she even considers taking it with her.

I found myself de-cluttering my home in the last year and realized just how many things had no home and how many things I was throwing out or giving away.

I made the decision right there and then that if I bought something, I would need to have a home for it.

It has seriously curbed my spending habit. Not to say that I don’t sometimes fall off the wagon and spend without thinking it through. Lifetime habits are never always 100% broken, however, I usually find the mistake in my ways and end up getting back on track (usually giving away the trinket that I bought on impulse).

This little trick is good every month of the year and has saved me thousands I’m sure and I wanted to share it with everyone today. Just one of many things that got us where we are now. Debt Free.
