We work hard to earn our money so we definitely deserve to spend it whichever way we want right? Perhaps, but we should think ahead and learn to become smart spenders of our money. We learn how to be a smart spenders in order to keep more of the money we earn. When we become smart spenders we are able to keep more of what we earn so we can save for rainy days, invest in stocks, or have enough to pay our expenses such us our mortgage.
In 1926, George Samuel Clason published a series of pamphlets written in parables that was set in the ancient city of Babylon. The book became known as The Richest Man in Babylon and has become a classic in financial literature. I first encountered this little book when I graduated college and was blown away by the simplicity of the story and by the tried-and-true lessons it presented for accumulating wealth.
