A thicker wallet means bigger expenses.
There are a lot of reasons why people purchase a product or a service. The most obvious reason is because they need or want such product or service. In many instances however, this isn't always the case. Impulse buying is how most people refer to it. It's that urge to purchase something just for the sake of purchasing something because you have the cash for it. But why do people do it: buy something they know they don't really need. It is partly because they know they can afford it since they have the money at hand in their wallets. People will more likely buy something (even if they don't immediately need it) if they know that they have the cash available in their wallets.
A thinner wallet means smaller expenses.
In light of what's already been discussed above, it is therefore best to carry a thinner wallet around. Bring with you an amount that will carry out the current day's expenses. This way, you minimize unnecessary expenses such as impulse purchases. It's simple. You can't spend more than what's contained in your wallet. Unless of course if you make use of cards and other purchasing options.
Bonus money-saving tips.
1) Create a daily budget. Estimate the necessary expenses of your regular day. Carry the exact amount of your estimate in your wallet. Budgeting is so easy yet so many people ignore to implement it.
2) Whenever you are about to purchase something, always ask yourself the following question twice: “Is this going to make my life better? Am I going to need it?”
Impulse buying and unnecessary purchases are the worst enemies of saving money. If you are able to get rid of them using the tips discussed above, you will be saving more than you might expect. So thin out your wallet, follow a budget, avoid those unnecessary purchases and you will save a lot of money along the way.
