Every home will have things that need to be done but most home owners will rarely have the time or the money to have them done which means that most homes of young people today remain neglected because these young people are too busy working hard, long hours only to spend all the money that they earn on bills and their most basic expenses. This is a very sad scenario because it is important for young people to reap the benefits of their hard work.

Make a wish list

It is important that you make a wish list for yourself. Your wish list should consist of two mini lists of little things that you want for yourself and things that you need for your home. One list would have things like clothes, shoes, a dinner at your favourite restaurant and such and the other list would have things like getting the car park line marking re done in your home, getting a new table for your dining room and things like that.

If you need to have the painting re done in your home to get the job done properly; that would also be an item that needs to be on your second list. You can actually do the portrait of your home yourself if you have a friend help you in order to save a little money.

After you have made the list, it is important for you to start putting small amounts of money away in a jar. It can be very small amounts because every dollar that you put away will matter and will collect up. When you have put the small amount of money away, you can forget about it until one day, maybe at the end of the year at Christmas, you can take the jar out and count all the money that you have collected and tick off a few things on your list. You can do it by getting a few things done off each list.

Although many of us find it difficult to save money, we tend to brush off small amounts of money and the change we receive. In other words, when we buy something for ninety eight dollars, we would most likely brush off the two dollars of change and we may eve buy ourselves some junk food to round off the figure without too much of a thought. But if we were to collect that money every time we go out, we are likely to have quite a bit of money collected for ourselves at the end of the year.
