Stay Busy, Save Money

I’m the type of person who likes to be really busy and it isn’t very easy for me to relax. Even when I’m watching a movie or a show, I’m on my computer or in my notebook writing something. While it does get annoying at times, it makes me stay productive, which at the end of the day helps me save money.

Being bored, people tend to spend more money. They just look for something to occupy their time and shopping is usually a good cure for boredom. Keeping busy eliminates boredom and helps you save. The busy person does not have time to go out and buy things. The busy person does not walk around window shopping or browsing multiple online stores. The busy person is so busy that they just do not miss buying things.

Concentrating on your goals and productivity will not only help you earn money, but it will also help you save it. The more you want to reach your goals, the more time you will spend being productive towards them, and less time procrastinating. Being busy helps you achieve new goals, learn new things, interact with others who teach you unique things, and often provides life lessons that help you make better decisions regarding your life, career, family, personal finances, and the saving of money.

While I understand that this is not easy for everyone to do, I’m telling you it is worth it. My life dramatically changed for the better when I decided I wasn’t going to waste any more time. Great things happened and I accomplished goals that were considered pretty big. However, I didn’t consider them very big because I was too busy working on my next goal.

  1. Boredom. It’s the worst thing to happen to my wallet.

  2. Oddly enough, I’ve found I’m much more productive when I have more going on. When I don’t have time to slip into procrastination mode and distractions, I don’t.
