Why not use this expensive stuff when you can do the things on the inexpensive stuffs. Example; all cellphones can help you make a call or send a text messages ^_^ Even if it is cheap or expensive.
Tip # 8 Buy Assets not Liabilities – this is what I am telling you all the time, why not buy an assets, example, buy a thing that can produce money on your part, anything that you can buy that provides you an extra income – these are assets, while things that can add to your expenses – that are liabilities, hope you understand that.

Tip # 3 Be Aware of Loans – loans are debts, car loan, house loan, if you want a house and a car, plan it, write a goal and take action, why not save and invest, the answer is not to get a loan and buy a car or a house. Imagine the interest rates in the loan company, but if you invest money – at least in 2-5 years you can buy your house or car without getting any loan or debt.
