The Many Things People Waste Money On

"My belief is that Spirit is right here in this moment, within us, surrounding us, embracing us, connecting us, and the more awake and aware we are to Spirit's presence within and around us, the more joy, abundance, and vitality we will be able to experience in our own lives. The mystics call it 'practicing the presence of God.' And to me, that is what life is all about."
~ Edwene Gaines


The many things people waste money on…
I think the last time my family and I went to McDonald’s we spent over $30.00.  Strange part of that was we didn’t even buy anything all that special.  Just a couple “happy meals”, a couple of the “value meals” (yea, right, I don’t know where the value is), and I just HAD to have a Frappe.  And that little bit came up to… I think it was $32.95.  Nuts, right?

My husband likes to “waste money” on the lottery tickets.  He likes to call it an investment.  I don’t know how many times we stop at the gas station to fill up our gas tank and he runs inside only to return with three or four scratch-offs along with a few instants for the nightly lottery drawing.  On any given trip, he will spend $15-$30, just on that silly game of chance. 

I know I’ve done some “silly spending” in my recent past.  A couple weeks ago I came across a neat little t-shirt from my favorite show, The Walking Dead.  I’m not really sure what lured me to waste money on that.  I’m usually a bit more practical.  I spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $30 for a shirt that didn’t even fit after the first washing. 

Americans waste money on…
Americans, especially, waste billions of dollars each year on frivolous purchases or on items that provide no real value in our lives.
The habits of the average American include buying junk food, paying fines, and taking our chances at the casino.  When you compare what Americans spend money on to what people in other countries spend money on, it’s a bit sickening.
Which is why I never understand how people can be so “scared” to invest into a home business.  Suddenly, they’re the most frugal people on the planet and won’t even consider the option. 

Anything you do in life that generates income requires an upfront fee... the electric bill that gets paid when you fill out an online job application, the money spent on transportation to get to a job interview, heck there's even an upfront fee required to be a drug dealer (OK... that might be a bad example... just an environmental response). BUT... the point is that there is always a fee or an initial investment of something!  I know in the past, I had to waste money on SEVERAL trips to SEVERAL job interviews before I found and/or was accepted to the “perfect” job. 
You won’t waste money on…

THIS!  Think of this as an investment in yourself.  ANY business expense is tax deduction and really, what do you have to lose?  You may just find out this is the best thing out there since sliced bread.  LoL.  Hey, do yourself a favor, “waste money on” something that I know will be beneficial to you in the long run…

By now you are wondering what I’m leading up to, yes?
