What Men Taught Me Part 2: Money

So as I’ve been reading some Men’s Fashion blogs I found some great articles on style and some great articles on money as well. I thought this article from Inquringmind was very interesting:

Fashion is for Poor People

This sentiments of this article is exactly what I have come to realise. It is so easy to get caught up in the new and seeking the adulation of others that you forget all the other things that matter in life.

“Don’t just buy something because you like it. Buy it because you love it, and because it fits your long term plan. Staying current is cool, but it’s also costly. “

It is much better to save for one item that will be useful in the long term than buy a mountains of items that you’ll ultimately throw away before the next season.

Let’s see if I can stick to these values this year.
