Now that I have a new job at the bakery, I can spend my money on the pair of shoes I've wanted!
I think that's a perfect idea. This way I'll have money saved when the time comes to buy my car and I will also have some economic freedom. Paychecks may seem small and I might have to wait to buy something I like, but it will be worth it.
How you spend your money is completely up to you, but you should be mindful that you also need to save for your new car.
That is very true, I didn't think of that. What do you suggest I do?
How about this. With every paycheck you have, what if you spent half of it on whatever you wish, and save the other half to go toward your new car.
I'm glad we are both happy with this decision. Your savings will be produced by saving money as it comes, and that money will benefit you now and in the future.
