My friend Connie wrote a great post this week about Needs vs Wants. Her husband is currently laid off and they are doing everything they can to keep current on their mortgage and provide the basic necessities.
I found it interesting to read the comments because people were discussing what is a need and what is a want. I think it is easy for “wants” to become needs. With the economy still recovering it never hurts to take a look at your expenses and see if there are some wants you could cut out of your budget.
Have you looked at your budget lately? Have you fallen into the trap of thinking your wants are actually your needs?
