‘Tis the season to be jolly, buying gifts, going on holiday, drinking, eating and being merry. Let there be joy but try not to go into the New Year with broke beginnings. To avoid turning that jolly into gloom, here’s a reminder from The Richest Man in Babylon to keep your finances in check.

“The reason why we have never found measure of wealth. We never sought it.”
― George Clason, The Richest Man in Babylon

The 7 Cures For A Lean Purse’

  1. Start thy purse to fattening.
  2. Control thy expenditure. LOUDER: CONTROL THY EXPENDITURE!
  3. Make thy gold multiply.
  4. Guard thy treasures from loss.
  5. Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment.
  6. Insure a future income.
  7. Increase the ability to learn.

Don’t wait for January and the ever fruitless Ney Year’s resolutions. How many years have you been doing that but failing to follow through? You still have some days in December, you still have NOW, so make use of it so that January is not the worst month of the year, where you’re counting the days to payday.

Happy Holidays!
