1) Always think long-term when making decisions
Don’t get cheap people confused with frugal people. There is actually a difference. Cheap people always look for a quick fix, something that will benefit them immediately. Frugal people are always looking for a long-term solution.
Get into the habit of thinking long-term when making purchases, especially “big” purchases. Things like appliances, cars, and houses should be thought of as a long-term investment. These are items you want to get the most value out of in the long-term.
Being able to sacrifice your desire for instant gratification and a fast solution will save you a ton of money.
