Sometimes the easiest way to save money is to just seclude yourself from your friends. I only really recommend this approach for people that are social butterflies and always succumb to the pressures of going to fancy restaurants, attending the latest festivals, having a few drinks, partying it up, getting an airbnb, paying for ubers, spending spending spending. This message is for you.
But how do I stop hanging out with my besties?
The first step to avoiding your friends is accepting the fact that you will not die if you don’t go out tonight. Then also accepting that you will 100% miss out on something amazing. I promise you that something cool will happen, and you’re going to miss it. If you can have peace knowing these things, then you’re ready. So next time you get a text from your bff saying “New brewery. Down?” You can reply back with “I’m good. I’m save hustling” or something along those lines.
Look, I don’t want to be a party-pooper. But there’s going to be a time when you really NEED to go out for a special occasion. Your bff will one day sign up for the army, and your whole squad decides to go on a cruise to say farewell. Only problem is…. you don’t have the money for it. So you stay home and miss out on the last opportunity to share memories with your bff.
The Hermit Save Hustle Challenge
Stay home and don’t spend money. Then save money for when you NEED it. Remember, there’s a difference between NEED & want.
