Based on what I see on social media I am amazed at how much money people spend. I know I shouldn’t believe everything I see on social media but when I see some people post a photo almost everyday where they show off a fancy meal, a holiday they went on, their latest designer clothes, accessories and shoes, I naturally wonder if they even have $1 in their bank account.
I just can’t fathom throwing away money like that.
Then again I don’t know the whole story. Maybe they are earning high salaries and still have money left over after all the spending. I find that really hard to believe in some of these cases but I don’t have access to their bank accounts so I can’t be 100% sure 🙂
Then again if it makes them happy to spend so much then who am I to judge? We are all different and just because I wouldn’t choose to spend my money in that way that doesn’t mean others don’t find happiness in doing so.
It’s not like I’m against spending money. I mean what’s the point of making money if you don’t enjoy yourself. We usually go on one holiday per year, eat out about 2-3 times a week and go to the cinema every so often (depends on what movies are out). Some people might think we are throwing away money too but these things make us happy.
I guess the key thing is that you shouldn’t spend more than you earn. If these people I see on social media still have money left over after all that spending then that’s fine. The problems start when you live beyond your means. Meanwhile I will try and be less judgemental 🙂
