A Wealthy Life

Nov 10, 2022

Episode 37 – What Are You Wasting?


What do two teaspoons of suncream have to do with living a wealthy life? More than you might think! I recently caught myself wasting time in the process of trying to save money – by spending half an hour extracting every drop of suncream from the bottle to go on holiday. This reminded me of the concept of “false economy” which is when an action that starts out saving money ends up costing more. In my case, I might have saved 50p on suncream, but I lost 30 minutes!


Now, there are several common ways we all waste our resources, and I will go over these today, as well as ways to prevent waste. If you are curious about where your financial plan might have some leaks, tune in and prepare to save time and money on your wealth journey!
