Stop being a reckless consumer

Don’t punish me on my way to the wrong path because I think I’m in the right direction. Punish me when I’m back because I will have realized my mistakes and learned my lesson. I will listen to you loud and clear from then onward.

In a family I know, $25 could feed 6 for three months when I spent $100 in a day. I stopped this when I had to manage $10 in a week when I was broke. Then I remembered a saying a friend told me years ago when I won $1000 and felt very rich:

When you have money, act like you don’t have any. When you have plenty of it, give those who have nothing.
