What is the 30 day savings rule?

Rounding it up

  • The 30 day savings rule is simple: the next time you find yourself considering an impulse buy, stop yourself and think about it for 30 days.

  • If you still want to make that purchase after those 30 days, go for it.

  • This rule works because by forcing yourself to wait on all your non-essentials, you remove the emotions from your spendings.

  • Integrate the 30 day savings into your finances by identifying your needs versus wants, setting up a savings account, and creating an entertainment fund.
