There is a big difference between a want and a need. I want a new car, and $1,000,000. However, I need my Kia, black coffee and about $35,000 a year to pay the bills.
We all know something we buy might make us happy in the moment. But from time to time when I buy them I usually have buyer's remorse for breaking my budget.
Just avoiding spending opportunities can make living stingy that much easier. Consider canceling or throwing away these types of bills / subscriptions.
