Most bank clients have understood that spending and saving processes are quite different from one another. Usually making a decision between either spending or saving may appear a tough one. As one has already noticed, the first option excludes the second one. And it is only up to you to decide whether to get into debts by spending too much or trying to earn more and thus, leveling the financial life and leading it on top.
Financial freedom seems to be an unachievable goal and invariable willingness to buy something that is basically totally unnecessary s a blocking point towards reaching this money freedom. So once again, why is it so complicated to save and too easy to spend? Let us review the contradictions between two processes and find a solution.

2. Living in the moment is enjoyable but what about future?
How many people do you know who have taken responsibility of cutting expenses now and saving towards the future even if they can afford buying things at the moment? The reply will be: just a few examples.

Using short term loans and living in the moment without taking future into consideration is careless and if you see yourself as a financially responsible grown up, forget about instant tantalizing temptations and focus on making investments now instead of overspending and jumping into debts. It will make do no good.
