Saving Money by Learning from Your Mistakes (Frugal Friday)
Posted By Jessica Fisher On January 20, 2011 @ 7:30 pm In Frugal Friday | 33 Comments
Often times in our endeavors to save money, we can get tunnel vision. We think about “saving money,” but sometimes forget the “cost” involved in achieving that goal.
We all have these stories, do we not? We shop carefully, in the name of Saving Money, and yet, we sometimes don’t think the transaction all the way through to the end result.
Sometimes the gamble pays off and sometimes we’re drinking swill disguised as coffee to pay our “stupid tax.”
I’ve had this happen innumerable times. Things that help me?
Not only do I see what I have so that I buy the right things, but I’m also reminded of dumb purchases that are languishing in the pantry. It’s a great reminder not to do it again.
Sometimes you just can’t make it through that stash of bad coffee. Don’t stress over it. Just move on.
Laughter is the best medicine. Don’t be too serious about a mistake or misstep. Laugh and then try not to do it again.
Learning from our mistakes can be a great way to save money in the future.
