People has good and bad habits. It is their natural way of acting. But, you can change it if you put your will and energy to it. Spending habits is one of the habits as our American citizens should watch over. Some people has worst spending habits. They never thought about saving extra bucks just eliminate something you don't really need from your daily life. Such as buy a coffee from starbucks everyday. You can fight against your temptation, instead of drink it five days a week, why not every other day, or once a week. It is your habits. You can change it to save your some more money on your saving account.

One of the easiest ways to save money is to change your payment priorities. If you pay all your bills and repayments on the day you get paid, then you quickly learn that there's not much left over. This will stop you buying all those little treats and temptations until your next pay check arrives. If you keep paying the primary priorities first, then you soon learn to watch where all your other money is going.

Great discusion topic. We spend too much on things we don't need, and then have no money in times we need it. I am busy saving seriously to reach a certain goal. I have started to cut out on a lot of things. I grant myself as little as possible so I can save as much as possible. i have found that with not having those things that I am cutting on, Im not less happy. I am actualy happier now everytime I see my bank statement and the amount I have saved thus far. That gives me more encouragement to save and spend even less on things I don' realy need. I am glad I started saving because it has also helped in my discipline. I can learn to say not to certain things because I do not have to have all things. Blessings
