Today I went to a restaurant for a family outing and as usual people fight over in wanting to try and pay for the bill. The bill was about $100 which wasnâ€™t too bad considering the amount of people. The interesting thing was that the person that snagged the bill was not currently working as she was semi retired. A comment was then made that the bill is only not much if you had money coming in.
I tend to always look at bills that way too in determining if something is â€œnot muchâ€ to buy something. Example, I know dining out is usually a major money killer for many people. So while say a $5 meal for lunch may not be â€œmuchâ€ I would rather look at it from your entire income point of view. For example, some people only make say $12/hour. When you look at it from that perspective that $5 can seem a lot.
Examples like that is why Iâ€™d say it is better to always look at how much you actually have when you are spending versus price comparing the costs from different vendors.
