Thrifty Thursday: How to Stop Buying Crap

This week's Thrifty Thursday will summarize how YOU can stop buying crap, summarized from Stop Buying Crap. The truth is, a lot of what people buy is crap. This is good for corporations that sell crap. This is not good for people who want to have a future with money in it.

Imagine this, except with more of Benjamin Franklin's face in it

Your future holds money once you stop buying crap

I'm not a fortune teller, but that's a fact of life. If you spend every penny you earn, your future will never have money!

So how do you stop buying crap? Five ways, taken from the website above.

Way 1 to stop buying crap: Understand what's important to you. You, and only you, know what is important to you. A big TV? Gas? A nice car? Pets? Some people think things like that are unnecessary expenditures, but me personally, I like having the company of my two cats.

Way 2 to stop buying crap: Know your budget. This is something too few people do. Their monthly expenditures exceed their monthly income. You know what they call that in the business world? Unprofitable. Cut out unnecessary monthly expenditures so that you can have some leftover money from your income.

Way 3 to stop buying crap: Be patient and save. Saving money is great. Don't be an impulse buyer. See a nice shirt on sale? You can probably get it cheaper via Amazon. A great way to see if you really need something is to wait 30 days. If you still wanna buy that thing after 30 days, then go ahead and buy it. If the urge passes, congrats, you just saved money.

Way 4 to stop buying crap: Don't let some jerk tell you what to buy (and what not to buy). Sometimes I can be this jerk. You don't always have to listen to me, but sometimes if I do product reviews, I really stand by what I say. If you feel like a product is still good despite my saying its bad, or vice versa, then don't let me stop you. We all have our different tastes, so go ahead and do as you please.

Fun fact: if you can have the self-discipline to not buy crap, you can succeed in anything!

Way 5 to stop buying crap: Spend sensibly and don't spend like there's no tomorrow. This one's the most important. Why? Because it's the number one way to get broke quickly. Sometimes when I find that I haven't spent money in a while, I find that I have a boatload of cash in my account. Then sometimes I'd be like, "Time to go on a spending spree!" That isn't sensible. Not at all. Don't do that. You can spend maybe half. That's sensible, I guess.

Onto you: Ready to stop buying crap? What kind of crap are you gonna stop buying?

I have to say your title grabbed me. Who hasn’t bought crap at one time or another? I love your wait 30 days suggestion… By that time it’s on sale anyway! This is great advice for anyone!

Thanks LuSundra! Yeah, I find it works for a lot of things… back when I used to play a lot of videogames, I’d spend like $70+ on a single game… but if you wait 30 days, you could get it used, on sale, or whatever, for like $50.

Glad you liked it! :)

You must have a mouse in your pocket, I avoid Chinese crap. I prefer to buy dog food that is not going to kill my pet, I prefer to not but toys for my kids with lead paint. I prefer to keep jobs right here in the greatest country in the world.

China is 1/4th the world’s population. They went from the 3rd LARGEST producer and assayer of silver to BANNING it’s exportation, outright. in 5,000 years, Chinese populace was NEVER permitted to own bullion as a method to accumulate wealth. Well- that ALL changed when the Shanghai Gold Exchange was opened last year…. 1/4th of the WORLD’S population, KNOWN for their frugality with a “buck” are SNATCHING up every BIT of bullion they can….keeping it from us. ALSO, silver as an industrial metal is used in CD’s, DVD’s, X-Rays, Jewelry, the chemical catalyst for creating plastic, iPods, cell phones, computers, and THOUSANDS of other items NEED silver to be made. The USA has outsourced ALL those production jobs… overseas demands increases EXPONENTIALLY, supply aboveground DECREASES TREMENDOUSLY- drives silver up.. . (Economics 101) who CARES if you have a Numi or bullion- just buy PHYSICAL silver….nobody cares if you have a VG or GOOD Morgan from 1938- they just want the SILVER…. BRO- you are SOO close to “GETTING IT”…
