About Lesson

It’s easy to say “I need”ā€” but do we really need that thing? Often, we don’t distinguish between the things we want and the things we really need. As a result, we spend without thinking on short-term wants and then find that we don’t have enough to buy the necessities or reach our long-term goals.


In this section you will learn:


  • how to tell the difference between needs and wants
  • how to set spending priorities
  • what your usual spending habits are.
