There is a time for quantity and a time for quality. There is a difference between cheap and frugal. Being a good financial steward doesn’t mean being cheap. Quality usually lasts long enough to make the prices come out the same if not better.
I was watching a YouTube video yesterday and I scrolled down to see a summary comment. You know, a comment that summarizes the main ideas of the video in a few sentences. There were almost as many praises for that comment as there were for the video.
I’m extremely protective of the content on Freedom Sprout. I carefully research every article and include the sources. High quality content is priority. That’s why I’ve never published a guest post. But today, I am sort of publishing my first guest post.
These books aren’t just to help you get some strategies for clearing clutter; they’ll also help you stay motivated through the process and take a new mindset on your stuff. Choose a book or two and start. You don’t have to have the best method. You don’t need to get everything right; you just need to get started.
If there’s one thing I’ve preached since the start of Freedom Sprout, it’s this: if we teach kids how to manage their money when they’re young, we won’t be showing them how to dig their way out of debt later. It’s important for kids to understand debt, and how it can destroy their life.
What kind of financial future do you want for your kids? A successful future? A debt-free future? An intentional future? Since more is caught than taught (i.e. actions speak louder than words), we often say we want this financial freedom for our kids, and continue to live in financial ruin.
