How can I save money?

Many of us have been wondering how to save for the future. Some argue that we shouldn’t be concerned about the future because no one knows anything about it. They advise us to focus on the now. However, as one president described it, “the greatest way to predict your future is to create it.” This quotation comes from Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States.

But how do you save? This is still a challenging question to answer. Here are some easy methods to save for future.

Spend only what you need.

It is appropriate to spend according to necessity since buying anything again incurs additional charges, and because it is also difficult to make money, it should be spent in the most significant and desirable method. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

1 Corinthians 16: 2

We must prioritize our necessities and desires.

If we can identify the difference between these two, we can save a lot of money. Food, for example, is a must, whereas devices are a want. Wants include all material items. If our stuff is still in good condition, let’s not buy a new one only to stay up with the trends.

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Matthew 6:25-34
