回想一下你不得不做的东西?回家同时考虑一下。给你24小时去决定是否你真的不得不做, 72小时更好。当我已经用这种方式去节约数百美元,同时你知道什么了?我的生活因为没有那些事后而满意,同时,我想我不得不这样做。
See something you have to have? Go home and think about it. Give yourself 24 hours to decide if you really have to have it. 72 hours is even better. I’ve saved myself hundreds of dollars this way, and you know what? My life is just as satisfying without those things that, at the time, I thought I just had to have.
使用免费的产品以取代铺张浪费的习惯
Replace one money guzzling hobby with something free.
如果你是一个狂热的读书看好者,请尝试去图书馆而不是去书店。如果你是一个高尔夫手,花一周时间去社区的练习场进行开球练习。这最最重要的是没有放弃你所喜爱的。反尔更小,偶尔的替换将这里或者那里的得到节省。随着时间的转移,小东西将累积起来。
If you’re an avid book reader, try a trip to the library instead of the book store. If you’re a golfer, substitute one tee time a week for a trip to the community driving range. The important thing is not to give up the things you like! Instead make small, occasional substitutions that will save a little bit here and there. The little things add up over time.
不要去访问你喜爱的商店
Skip the visit to your favorite store.
几年前我意识到我每次在逛沃尔玛的时候花了许多钱。通过只允许我自己每个月一次的旅行,我缩减了我的一半花费。因此下次你被诱惑停留在你喜爱的商店,仅仅只是兴趣所致。可以散散步,喝杯咖啡,或者读一本书以用来替代购物。
Years ago I realized I spent hundreds of dollar each time I walked into WalMart. I cut my spending in half by allowing myself one trip a month. So next time you’re tempted to stop in at your favorite store, just drive on by. Instead of shopping, go for a walk, grab a cup of coffee, or read a book.
缩减规模
Downsize.
作者埃克哈特托尔(在他的书一个新世界中)谈论我们会通过一些事去有倾向的找出我们自己,和我们的自我价值。啊,你不是你的东西!
In his book A New Earth, author Eckhart Tolle talks about our tendency to identify ourselves, and our self worth, by our things. Well, you are not your things!
当你在财务上做精明的决定将远远比以驾驶汽车的幻想和窗上最新的服饰自我为中心的感觉要好,你能够到这种自我崇拜的感觉。你能够评估生活方式的改变。它可以是你的房子,你的车,你的衣服-无论是什么,缩减你能缩减的地方。
The sense of self respect you get when you make smart financial decisions is worth far more than the ego-centric feeling of driving the fancy car and wearing the latest styles. Evaluate lifestyle changes you can make. It might be your house, your car, your clothes – whatever it is, downsize where you can.
少开车
Drive less.
一周拼一次车。将旅行合并起来,一次将所有的出行都合并起来。更妙的是,一次将和一个朋友的所有出行进行合并同时拼车。
Carpool once a week. Consolidate trips, running errands all at once. Even better, consolidate and carpool all at once by running errands with a friend.
减少水电费
Reduce utility bills.
你是否真的需要呼叫等待,3方电话和支付其它额外的电话公司费用呢?清洗你的账单,同时看一下是否一至两个额外事额能够被关闭。补充一下,在这些天里开通或者关闭,空调和加热器。是的,当你第一次回家的时候,这不是令人舒服的,但是储畜将不断的增多。
Do you really need call waiting, 3-way calling and all the other extras the phone company charges you for? Scour your phone bill and see if one or two of those extras can be turned off. In addition, turn up, or off, the air conditioning or heater during the day. Yeah, it’s not quite so comfortable when you first get home, but the savings will add up.
不要出去吃饭
Save on eating out.
一段时间出外面吃一次午餐。在你出发去吃饭前,请试着先看一下厨房,同时看一下在家里能弄出什么有创意的菜式。如果你不得不经常出去吃,请跳过汽车和冰红茶。喝水不仅对你,对那些每天在外面吃中饭的人更好,这简单的替代将为你每月节省30美元。
Take your lunch once in awhile. Before you head out for dinner, try a glance through the pantry first, and see what creative meal you can come up with at home. If you have to eat out frequently, skip the sodas and ice teas. Drinking water is not only better for you, for some who eat lunch out every day, this simple substitution will save them over $30 a month.

在家里工作
Work out at home.
健康与健身是我人生中一项当务之急,同时我相信每一个人将从日常运动中受益。因此如果唯一方式你成为健身房会员后能承诺进行减肥,比坚持下去。
Health and fitness is a priority in my life and I believe everyone can benefit from regular exercise. So if the only way you can commit to a fitness regime is through a gym membership, than stick with it.
但是如果你是自我激励类型的人,那里许多类的健身活动不需要任何的花费:走路,跑步,在家里做瑜伽,买一个健身视频,做俯卧撑,仰卧起坐,用健身带和一对哑铃
But if you’re the self-motivated type, there are all kinds of fitness activities that don’t require a monthly fee: walk, run, do yoga at home, buy a fitness video, do pushups, sit-ups, use exercise bands and a pair of dumbbells…
了解你爱好的花费
Monetize your hobbies.
我的妹妹喜欢艺术和工艺。她走进珠宝店时会花上数百美元。她开始制作珠宝并且出售它们。她不会赚更多的钱,但是她赚得足够能负担起她爱好的花费。
My sister loves arts and crafts. She can’t walk into the bead store without spending a few hundred dollars. She started making jewelry and now she sells it. She doesn’t make a lot of extra money, but she earns enough to cover the cost of her hobby.
其它的钱能节约爱好的想法吗?就像我所提到的,我关注于健康和健身。我有时候教一节健美操课以换于成为健身俱乐部免费会员的资格。当我在学习骑马时,我一周在牲口棚工作几个小时以换取参加骑马的课程。我有一个客户,他会一周几个小时工作在专业高尔夫店里以换取打高尔夫。
Other money saving hobby ideas? As I mentioned, I’m into health and fitness. I teach an aerobics class on occasion in exchange for a free gym membership. When I was into horses, I worked a few hours a week at the barn in exchange for horseback riding lessons. I have a client who works at the golf pro shop a few hours a week in exchange for tee times.
用了以上的这些建议,你能够每月节省数百美元。
Use just a few of the suggestions above, and you can save hundreds of dollars a month.
