How Minimalism Can Help You to Save Money Unintentionally

Do you really want to know how minimalism can help you to save cost unintentionally?

Read on.

A few weeks ago, I was thinking of buying an alarm clock that also functions as a radio.

But adhering to the 30 days rule of waiting before purchasing something, I put it on hold.

Right now, when I think back, I am thank ful I did not purchase the alarm clock cum radio.

Because having the alarm clock would be a redundancy. I already have my mobile phone which I have been using as an alarm clock. And I always listen to the radio when I’m in a car.

That is how minimalism helps me to save cost unintentionally. It avoids redundancy in the functions of stuff that I have.

Because of that I have also eliminated a desk calendar from the working desk that I have at home.

I don’t need one because I can use my mobile phone to know the date. And my netbook is also able to do the same.

So I am going to go around the house later and check what other stuff is a redundancy in functions and can be eliminated

You can do the same too :-)

Have a minimalist day ahead!

  • I like to defer buying decision in order to combat impulse buying. Most of the time, we only think about how nice it would be to have something then buy it and regret later. Obviously the hardest part is delaying the decision but it’s definitely a good thing.

    You are correct TS. Deferring buying decision is good to combat impulse buying. And it is quite challenging at times ;-)

  • Great post man.

    Thanks buddy

  • Live by the rule ka? Must obey that 30 days rule ka?
    Oh yeah, broke other rules and obey some other rules, especially the one that you invented yourself.

    We can always break the rules and obey the law. In my understanding rules are social agreement or contract.

    Of course I obey my own rules that I invented. You can too.
