How would you like to save some money? Follow this simple advice.

Take a notebook, and on the top of any page write this headline: “30 Days Waiting List.”

Every time you feel like you want to buy something, be it the latest fashion, or the newest technology, get your notebook out and write whatever it is you think you need, along with the date. Also, put the amount money it would have taken to buy it aside in your moneybox. Now, forget about the whole thing.

If after 30 days you still remember what you wanted, get your notebook out. If you definitely need it, well, go out and buy it (but one has to wonder how you managed to survive without it for 30 days, and now you feel like you can’t live without it). If you feel like you don’t really need it, get you moneybox out and look at your savings, and rejoice. If you continue doing this, you’ll soon have a lot of money from not buying things you didn’t need in the first place.

Now, do you want to take the high road and transcend? Donate half of your savings. There are people with so many needs, that could easily live with half of the money you save from not buying things you don’t need. And even after your donation, you’ll still have half of the money. Everybody wins.

Since my About Me page didn’t actually say anything about me, I’ve received hundreds of emails asking me to share a little more (truth be told, there were only two emails, and one sounded more like a complaint). So I updated my About Me page, not so much to say anything about me, but to share what has moved me, and in hopes that contributing moves you too. I know it is a little bit long for blogging standars, but I think it’s worth it. And if you like it, please share your experiences and thoughts, so we all can learn. Thanks.

Get use to doing good deeds regularly. You don’t have to change the world in one bold move, instead try to contribute every day by doing your part. Don’t underestimate the satisfaction you’ll feel by doing just one small act of kindness, for happiness is like a chain, and each link is one of those moments that you hold in your memory without even realizing it. Every time you perform a small act of kindness you are forging your destiny, until without noticing it, you are suddenly happy and you don’t even know why. And if all this wasn’t enough, know that what may be a small act for you, can literally change another person’s life.
