Money not spent, means less money needs to be earned.

My friend was in my kitchen the other day and I was making our main meal. As she passed me the tube of tomato puree out of the fridge she commented that it was empty. I got the rolling pin out of the drawer and rolled it up a couple of times and got over a teaspoon more out of it. She cracked out laughing, shaking her head saying “only you”.

She might think I am mad, but it is little habits like this that have saved me money over the years, and enabled me to retire early and live on a small pension. Each little bit of money not spent, means less money needed to be earned. Now who is bonkers?

The more money works for you, the less you have to work for money.
