If saving money or being more financially solvent was part of your success strategy for 2013, becoming aware of where you are spending your money is imperative. How do your spending habits compare with that of “ average American ” households?
Do you yield your consumer spending power by purchasing from companies and corporations that support your ideals, or are your dollars up for grabs to the lowest bidder? If you want to change the way mega-corporations do business, quit buying from them. If a company has bad business practices that you think should change, quit supporting them by buying their products with your hard-earned money. Support your local economy and buy locally from independently owned businesses . Cheaper is not always better.
