First of all, in a market economy context, even globally speaking, where everybody is looking and keeping very tight their budgets, including companies or businesses, I find it very important to have it first a ‘financial diet’ let’s say, in which you cut everything and then you start from zero and see constantly and gradually what are the expenses that you should add under the current conditions.

And then after all, how do we each and every single person, in our own personal level and turn, take care of our budgets also, so that we can achieve and accomplish what we want, desire and set our mind on, about this is also the financial education, as I have well discovered again at a meeting this week with a group full of people set on deeds and done, each in his own field of expertise of course. 😊

Then secondly, I think it should be very clear from the beginning that saving sources are slow, meaning you can not expect to get reach over night from this or them, but it seems important to invest a little bit of your time into it, if you can cover some expenses in this way, or in one form or another. And very important it seems to me to set a target for each one, which can change over time of course, but to know from the very beginning what you are aiming with each and to what extent. Again, the most important to me seems to be also the time allocated for each one, taking into account that you are using your own personal free time for activities to do this, that you need as well for anything else.

In the next steps of this article, I would like to add here my methods discovered or sources for saving up, perhaps even to discuss a little bit about what we do best in a day-to-day job, which is why it seems important to me at the beginning of the way to ask if someone else has found anything faster in the meanwhile, or a way to accomplish quicker what you have set your mind on? 😁
First of all, the pure saving methods, simple and on hand for everyone, are referring to or I think are closely linked also to the environment in which we live, in my opinion. For me these methods translate into a clear reduction of the unnecessary consumption or use of personal resources, namely time and money:
– Have you ever thought of water as the source of life and how important it is the water we drink every day? To me it seems important to drink good water. Water is found in nature, it is a common good given by nature and we should all benefit of it unlimited. Now, aside from the fact that the water may not be good to drink in certain areas, but you may boil it while doing other activities and then add some fruit slices to have a really good water or live water and plus much cheaper, if you do not have the solution of a water filter. But if we think about the time lost in supplying us with the water tanks, not to mention the money, that minimum 2l of water a day can turn into a great saving source. Leaving aside also the repercussions on the environment let’s say, with all those tanks or bottles of plastic thrown in nature, with a simple calculation for a person only: 2l of water per day = 30 x 2.20 lei translate to a minimum of 60 lei per month, and the saved amount can be invested further at will, either in a water mug or in a filter, or eventually in what we want everyone to really have in our lives.
