After I posted my No spend Feb video back in Feb (funny enough 🙃) I had a lot of positive feedback and people telling me how I gave them inspo to try and save a few pennies.
The outcome from my quiet month was great and I really noticed the difference but here we are nearly 5 months later and I’m back to my old ways.
Why is it in this day and age money just doesn’t seem as precious and valuable as it once did?
I obviously mean this not as literal as the words may read but we definitely have more of a “treat yourself” mentality which just seems to be okay? Me myself, am super guilty of it – I wake up one day and go “right you need to save this this and this next month so stop” or I could wake up the next and go “I’ll be fine though, I always am”
Is there one attitude that’s better to have or should we be living in the now?
When I think what my mum had when she was my age I freak myself out – a baby a job and a mortgage. I’m just here cuddling up to my unicorn teddy every night hoping to wake up looking like someone from Love island 🤷🏻♀️
Savings and me basically don’t exist and I don’t really get wether I should be panicking or should I be realising my wage just about sees me through one month to the next and it’s virtually impossible to put anything away.
I do pay into a pension though so I’m basically safe right? 🙈
The real question from this post is; is the mindset of us millennials the way it should be? Or should we be saving that extra £3.40 from the Instagrammable flat white we’ve just bought for the future.
Are you guilty of having the “millennial mindset” or are you savvy?
