If you don’t use it, don’t pay for it.

What do you shell out money for every month? Sure, rent or mortgage, utilities, food, but what about non-essentials? Take a look at your routine expenses and the time you spend enjoying the results of them.

How many hours do you watch those extra cable channels? What's does that mean you pay per hour? Do you still plan to be spending that much time that way or are there other things you'd do if the temptation wasn't there? Do you read the paper every day? Is it worth the subscription? What about the magazines you get? And that gym membership? Are there free exercise methods you'd use just as often?

It doesn't matter if it's a small expense, if it's not giving you a benefit you find useful or beautiful, then stop spending that money. Save it or spend it on something that matters to you more.

One thought on “If you don’t use it, don’t pay for it.”

  1. Similarly:
    * Don’t buy or rent another movie/book/magazine/cd if you own one that you haven’t watched/read/listened to yet.
    * Don’t buy more food than you can consume before it spoils.
