The world is changing and every household must make a decision how they are going to function into todays world. To manage successful in this present world can present enormous challenges. But will proper management and wisdom it can be successful. Some people are not satisfied with a simple life. We live in a commercial world and they used their commercial skills to entice the world. But we must not be influence by the world wealth, but live according to our means. Dont over spend, but budget our daily expenses. In some countries budgeting might mean having to resist the urge to borrow at high interest for unnecessary purchases. In others, it might mean keeping a tight rein on the use of credit cards. It might also mean resisting purchasing something on the spur of the moment without weighing needs and consequences. Stop wasting money on gambling, smoking tobacco, and excessive drinking harms the family's economic situation. If we try to be wise and make wise decision then we will be able to manange the present economic crisis and live a normal and happy life.
