I am excited to see my savings grow. Watching the balance of my savings and investments grow is one of the best feelings in the world. I feel proud of myself when I successfully save money each month.
Saving money is becoming easier for me each day. I may have struggled at times to save money in the past, but saving money feels totally natural to me now, because I developed the habit of saving.
When I save money, I feel content and happy.
I avoid spending money. I keep myself from buying anything unless it is either something I need or something I love. I enjoy receiving a lot of value for the money I do spend.
Unless one or both of those requirements are met, I would much rather put the money into my savings account.
When I spend money poorly, I regret it. I would rather secure my future than enjoy the very short-term positive feeling of spending money frivolously. Saving money feels great to me, while spending money foolishly always makes me feel bad.
Today, I am looking forward to spending my money wisely. I am shopping for bargains and avoiding any unnecessary purchases, because saving money feels good to me – every time!
- What would my retirement look like if I saved as much money as I know I should? What will my retirement look like if I keep my current spending habits?
- How much money do I save each month? What can I do to increase that amount?
- What are a few purchases I have made in the past that I regret?
