Focus On The Big Things In Your Budget

A grande latte at Starbucks costs $3.65. Meanwhile, the median price of a home in the United States is around four hundred thousand dollars right now. That means if you skipped one coffee per day, you could save up enough cash to buy your dream house in....just over three hundred years.
This is why I think it's pretty dumb advice to tell people to skip out on simple luxuries to save for a house. The math just doesn't add up.
It's better to focus on the BIG things in your budget (car payment, always paying your credit card, student loans) than to worry too much about buying a coffee.
Sometimes the little things in life are what keep us sane, so we can have the discipline to make responsible decisions on the big things!
