Everyone wants to save money and live within a great budget. The problem is the self-sabotage of overspending demons. The question is “how to control” and “put to rest” these overspending demons.
There are many answers, but one big one is creating a “saving money chart”. This will enable you to see why saving money is important and stop overspending. Then you can understand why and how to create several bank accounts.
There is very expensive psychological therapy to identify the issues that have led you to overspending demons. Most people who waste money on a regular basis don’t have money for psychological therapy.
EXTENSIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY
For others, the therapy is usually a short-term fix, since it works mainly while under the care of a therapist.
Sometimes therapists can’t figure out the connection to the real problem of overspending and not saving. The issues can be complicated.
The most difficult thing to identify is “triggers” for overspending. Where did it start? Who was your role model when you started? And what makes you feel like you want to overspend? What is the history of spending by your parents or guardians?
Some consumers feel they were prevented from spending as a child and young adults and it made them feel bad. Now, they want to make it up with excessive overspending. There are many healthy ways to feel good, identify those to replace them with overspending.
MASSIVE ORGANIZATION OF FINANCES
Disorganization with finances causes confusion. If there is no plan of needs versus wants, and budgeting for all the needs, including savings, confusion will ensue. When one is confused, random behavior takes over, in this case, excessive spending or massive overspending.
Then, there is no money for saving. Understanding why saving money is important will help. Reasons to save are it maintains your independence by not asking others to take care of your emergencies. Enables you to purchase larger items without predatory loans. Most loans are predatory.
These are two of the biggest reasons. Also, peace of mind that you have financial backing for an emergency is another.
Creating a “saving money chart” with different scenarios will help to understand why saving money is important and how it is done. Using financial calculators is another.
ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNERS TO STOP OVERSPENDING
The crowd theory may help with a successful plan to stop overspending and understand why saving money is important. There is a psychology behind having accountability partners. Partners help each other by encouraging each other to stay on track.
Each time one falters, encouragement from the other will pull up the other.
