Money Money Money --------> shopping habit!!!!!!?
How do university students get their money for their shopping habit,,,????
1)Their own money
Before they become an university students, they have working as a part timer at
such a food restaurants or supermarkets or etc. These part time jobs give them
a lots of money that they can shopping for their new cloth, new watch, new
handphone or shopping for ANYTHING that they like to....
2)Loan money (PTPTN/JPA)
Some of them have their own loan money that they got for every semester while
they're studying. As u all know, of course the money that they got are for their
study and for cost while they are studying in their campus. If they use the money
without a CONTROL, just for their shopping habit,, the money will be
goned just like a butterfly.......
3)Money from their own family
Sometimes their father or mother give them money just to make sure that they have
enough money to study comfortably. But, unfortunately, they use that money for
their shopping habit. The shopping habit is not good enough if just wasting money.
It will be even better if we save the money for future uses or for some charity.

"Knowing I can choose makes me feel more positive and in control of my finances."
How : You must change your habits slowly. Ussually, students shopping for emotional reasons, not because they needed things. You must come up with a strong positive goal to motivate you to shop less. Thinking about the negative impact could make me feel depressed, which would make you want to shop.
Lessons & tips: You need a strong motivating goal. Shopping is fun after all, and the amount doesn't really matter as much as you thought it would. When you wanted something more expensive you must try to save up your weekly amounts until you have enough. Put the spending money in an envelope and write down your purchases to keep yourself honest.
Resources: Create a budget. Basically you figure out what you spend your money on in a typical year, then break it down to monthly amounts. It is much easier than you thought and you can see the impact of your spending. $10 a week easily adds up to $500 in a year. There are better ways to spend your money.
