Keep a Reminder of Your Financial Goal

Need a simple way to save more money toward your financial goal? …Put a photograph of your dream in your wallet. Find a photograph that represents your dream. Do you want to buy a new home? Find a photograph of your dream home and place it in your wallet. Do you want to become a stay-at-home parent? Place a picture of your children in the fold in front of your credit cards. Whatever your dream find a photograph that represents that image and place it among the dollar bills or credit cards, so that you have to move it out of the way in order to spend money. Every time you open your wallet you will see the image of your dream and will hopefully be less willing to spend money on needless purchases. It’s often difficult to focus on our dreams when we’re running around in our everyday lives, but hopefully this gentle reminder to focus on your goals, will prevent you from unnecessary spending.

That's a good point. I keep a photograph of the beach at work too.

Great idea, I think I need a reminder of my goals in my office right next to my computer, that way I can dream of being on the beach when my boss is yelling at me.
