Learn the definition between a "want' and a "need".

The necessities of life, words of my college professor: Food, water & Shelter.

Before you purchase anything you should be asking yourself do I want this or do I need this.

You do not need those new pair of snowboarding boots. You do not need to buy the filet mignon at the butcher. You may want to but there is always an alternative. One of which is to not purchase anything at all.

Try to help track your finances.
