📝 Understand the 30-day rule

The 30-day rule states that if you have an impulsive desire to buy something, you should postpone that purchase for 30 days. In this time you can consider whether you really need the product. Often you will realize that the desire will subside and you can use the money for more important things.

🗓️ Start a 30-day calendar

Create a special calendar where you write down all the products you want to buy. Write down the date you made the wish and the product. You can use a physical calendar or an app on your phone.

💭 Think about whether you really need it.

During the 30 days you should always think about whether you really need the product. Is it just a temporary wish or something that would really improve your life? This reflection will help you to spend your money more consciously.

🔄 Check your calendar regularly

Check your calendar regularly and see if the 30 days are up. If so, think again if you still want to buy the product. Often you will find that the desire has diminished.

💸 Decide after 30 days

After 30 days you make a decision. If you still want to buy the product and can afford it, then do it. If not, then you have successfully saved money and can be proud of yourself.

🔄 Repeat the process

The 30 day rule is not a one time thing. Repeat the process over and over and you'll find that you get better and better at spending your money more consciously and saving more effectively.
