These 5 tips can transform your life by making you more efficient when it comes to your time and money. Sometimes, we have to learn from the older generations in order to keep ourselves from becoming mesmerized by the world of technology.
1. Turn off your phone.
If you allow the phone to dominate your life, you literally could spend 24 hours of every day answering emails, sending texts, and chatting on Facebook. Whenever you really need to get something done, turn it off.
2. Organize your life.
Make out lists, organize your closet into business and casual clothing, and write down important reminders will save you more time and money than you can imagine!
3. Know the difference between needs and wants.
Warren Buffett once said that if you buy things you don’t need, you will soon find yourself selling the things you do need. Be certain that you are buying (or paying for) what you need first.
4. Put your kids to work.
Show your children real love by teaching them that everyone needs to work and pull their weight. No, you don’t have to send them out to the fields to hoe weeds, but when I was only five, I made my own bed, dressed myself, put my dirty clothes in the hamper, got my own breakfast (cereal and milk), and did simple chores after school such as feeding the dog.
5. Keep it simple.
A blender and a knife does almost everything a food processor does for far less money and effort. This isn’t to say that I don’t love kitchen gadgets, but many of them cost a lot of money and are time-intensive.
