1 2

When you have the money you can get every solution for every little problem, but one has to know that what is the money sucking problem on the first place, right? Does spending money makes us feel good? Even it does, but we tend to spend too much out of impulse….which is termed as impulsive buying. We often confuse on what we “want” and what we “need” and how much we “need”. This the little difference that must be realized before we pull the money out of our pockets.

Here is the list on which we definitely spend our money on.


1. Shopping


It’s topical question which is needed to be debated again and again. Some people feel that it is worthwhile to spend money on and some others feel that it is useless to spend money on shopping especially branded clothes and shoes. So, it’s quite debateable whether you spend the money for the ‘’want’’ or for ‘’need’’. With the increase in social status by virtue of how much money you have. It’s a fashion fiesta kind of things people are conscious about ! It is the dress which determines one’s personality which at times are very petty because then one must look at Sonia Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi, they don’t wear hot dresses, so do people distaste or treat them as social isolates. Maybe it’s because of the peer pressure that people go around buying expensive clothes which you can buy at cheap prices from ‘’Bangkok street’’.


2. Take away food stuffs

You go to Mc Donalds and you end paying 200 bucks just for a burger and plus pay services tax . Burgers are not hard to make in your home. Or you are spending at around INR 1500 for a chicken curry or some Indian dishes which are expensive and one cannot complain again and again for such overspent. And when one really wants to have normal food it’s better to have cheap foods from normal restaurants. Nonetheless it’s a huge expenditure to eat in a bigger restuarant.


3. Travelling and booking expensive hotels

Travelling adds a lot of hassle at present. And the airlines have even hiked the prices of their ticket especially of the cheap airlines which once used to be airlines. People specially show their status that they travel a lot for business trips and as a result you spend your money impulsively at costly hotels to put up yourself, or having food and buying home decoration stuffs. If one has not really seen a Taj mahal , because it already exists in youtubes, or images. There it really doesn’t make much of difference. What makes the expenses more is that you put up yourself in an expensive hotels and paying bills. There is nothing comfortable than your home or go out for a 1 day night halt in a nearby local tourist spot if you really want to take a break instead to going to happening tourist spots which adds up nothing rather than adding your money in your bills.


4. Gadgets


Earlier people used to carry a pager or a simple ‘’beetle type phone” for necessity. Nowadays people have become gadget freak the day when nokia started launching OS phones and later then touchscreens. Touch screens are like next generation phone. Now, buying a phone has become a daily dose of life and smart people want smart phones to flaunt them before your collegues , friends. But, more the number of apps downloaded in your phone, the lesser are the chances to use them all. It is nothing but it’s a waste of time and money because ultimately phone is of one purpose , one – receive a call and second- texting.


5. Wedding and parties

Big fat weddings , shows how much lavishly one spends money to get to hearts of person together. It seems as ‘ it’s quite a show’ huh? Moreover, spending money in social weddings and parties are like flesh-scouring pain on your skin, the moment you start paying cheques after cheques to book band-bajas, caterars, wedding planners . you might become the latest gossip among the people in your wedding if you don’t come up to your expectations and that it distracts us a lot, because we cannot bear criticism. After wedding parties, you order for latest wines and expensive alcohol, as if it’s a club and that the sacred part of the marriage has now quite been mordernised . You celebrate the union of two people by virtue of drinking and dancing. It is a complete waste of time, money and subjected to mental agony. At the end of the wedding, the food goes to complete waste, which cannot be taken back, but half of our India’s population is still under poverty and people cannot get food , the only reason being rich people have them all (they don;t mind if it goes to waste) and later talk about India’s line of poverty.
