As of right now, goods that I’ll have to cut out to save as much as I can for future assets:
Clothes (have more than enough that will last me a while)
Unnecessary foods: no foods that aren’t incorporated into my diet. Sticking to buying lean meats, veggies, eggs, fish, bread, and rice as main expenses. May have to cut out quest bars too, shit. Why the hell do they have to be so expensive for a pack of 12???
Electronics: my phone, iPod, and laptop should be the only electronics I own. No need to buy anything else.
Possible future assets:
Stocks- I’ve been really interested in dropping some money to purchases some stocks. Half will be used on low risk stocks that build slowly over time, the rest I’ll use for high risk high reward stocks.
Website: want to try to build my own website and sell a specific product. Going to have to learn some coding first, but I heard it isn’t so bad once you have the basis down for building sites.
App?: so apparently you can buy an app distributor for only $25 to get your own app out in the market. I might try to make a simple and easy to use app and sell it cheap. If it’s relatively successful I’ll have some extra money flowing in each month.
Have been employing that “spartan lifestyle” approach to living below my means for the past few weeks. Cooking with minimum recipes to save time and money. Reducing spending on unneeded items to reduce clutter. Paying everything in cash and not using credit card. Using laptop to get kindle versions of books and stopped buying CDs and instead just using iPod for music to reduce clutter.
So far it’s been going well.
Being cheap as hell, but I’m hoping it’ll be worth it in the future with my plans on buying more assets.
