Pondering before spending money by flickr user saveasnew

It’s exciting whenever a new gadget, movie or event suddenly is available for purchase.  However, if taking the trip of your lifetime or living a location independent lifestyle is a serious dream of yours, it’s important to be able to reduce spending and live more frugally.  Being able to say ‘no’ to things and having self discipline is essential for an aspiring digital nomad.  Try to think of it like this:  whenever you spend frivolously what are you costing yourself?  Is it a several days in Laos or is it a weekend in rural France?  It pays to be frugal as you’ll be trading in material possessions for experiences.
