PowerPoint Presentation:

Be content with less. Money doesn’t bring happiness, so rather than fretting about what you don’t have, reflect on all that you do have, and be grateful. 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

Cut excesses. Minimize costly frills. Find ways to be saving, such as cutting down on your utility use. 2

PowerPoint Presentation:

Live within a budget. Outline a monthly budget plan that allows you to live well but not excessively, and to save on the side. 3 Stick to it!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Just say no to advertising. When you’re faced with media ads, mentally note that the goal of this ad is to make money for someone else by taking it out of your pocket. 4

PowerPoint Presentation:

Buy smart. Buy in bulk. 5 Save up to buy larger items, rather than buying on credit (which costs more). Look for good deals. Get items secondhand.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Do it yourself. When something needs fixing or building, try doing it yourself if feasible and safe, instead of hiring someone. 6 It can be gratifying and fun to learn something new, as well as a lot cheaper.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Eat in. Eating homemade food costs less, and it allows you to choose healthy options. 7 When you do eat out, cut down on expenses by splitting portions, ordering fewer drinks, and skipping dessert.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Give meaningful gifts. Gifts that you put time and love into are those that mean the most. 8 When gift-giving events arise, consider giving a coupon for time to be spent with you doing something that the other person enjoys.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Stay healthy. Staying healthy can save you tons of money on doctor’s visits, hospital bills, and medicine. 9 Eat healthfully, rest, and exercise.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Buck the tide. Don’t be a victim of fashion and consumerism. 10 Before you rush out to buy more stuff, take a look at what you already have and make sure you really need more. x

PowerPoint Presentation:

Focus on the priorities. What are the most important things in life? 11 www.tommyswindow.com For more PowerPoint messages visit: When you’re focused on the real priorities, material goods don’t matter as much.
