Once a goal of what it is you are going to buy has been decided, stick to it. It is quite easy to plan every detail, but when it comes to execution, many fail. We are aware of what has been determined but are tempted with the various marketing ploys and advertisements that surround us, and then falter.
For example, when grocery shopping, it is wise to make a breakdown of all the items that you must have at home. When at the supermarket or store, be sure that you follow that list because those are the essentials. Even if strangers come up and show you this hot new merchandise that they say you truly require, politely decline. If you have to consider it, then stop and think about it elsewhere, beyond their influence. If possible put it off for next time, when you have thoroughly studied those. If you were to veer off, you might forget those that are vital and be stuck with stuff you bought at an impulse but do not have any use for. It could start small but if you made a habit of that it could pile up and be a great waste of money that even a dental assistant salary can’t compete with.
Always set a budget and never ever go over. Look for your moneys worth. It has been proven that buying in bulk is cheaper; you should do that especially if you already have the space. You have planned what you are to buy and so that should be adequate. We should never use money we think we will get but do not really have on hand. This is ultimately so that we are always prepared for emergencies.
