One of the easiest ways to understand a person’s life is to look into their spending habits. For example, in college I spent the majority of my income on coffee and books. Have we not all been there?! Although this may seem like a simple example, I think we can use this principle in any stage of life we find ourselves in. Spending money on things we enjoy doing or put value in, is part of the reason we are motivated to work. We motivate ourselves to save money because we believe that after we achieve our goal we or people we love (value) will benefit from it. However, on the flip side when we choose to spend money on one thing we are also sacrificing something else.
