I think you missed one! Do not spend your money on cheap things, instead buy a good one that will last. As my grandma used to say "the poor buy the things twice".
Thank you Sorelle!!!

This was great! However when people say eat the rich IT IS NEVER on an individual per se is more of the system i.e. corporations that they’ve created that unfortunately keeps many people poor or living paycheck to paycheck. Billionaires only exists because the vast majority the people they employed are heavily under paid and many are also employed as “contractors” so the company can skip on providing benefits to their employees….so, there’s a lot more nuance to that, than hating the rich..🤷🏽‍♀️

Actually I made the decision to go backwards with my expenses. From an appartment to a campervan. From 1400 to 970 in total expenses. And at the moment my business is growing. The van costed me a lot of money. But with the new lower expenses my buffer will grow a lot faster. It's gonna be hard at first but in terms of financial and mental freedom it will be invaluable
