Itemize them and think about the importance of each item. Do you really need the item being analyzed? Remember that needing and wanting are different considerations.
You need a place to live. Shelter is a basic requirement for a safe and healthy life. The type and quality of the shelter is something that your wants will get involved with. You need a 2 bedroom apartment. You want a 4 bedroom house. You need to live near your work. You want to live at the beach. You need a safe neighborhood for the kids. You want a gated community with live security 24/7. Controlling your wants is the key to managing your future debt. Adjusting decisions already made based from wants back to needs is helpful in reducing your current expenses. Lowering expenses to fit within your family budget reduces debt building habits. It is a smarter way to live. This entire process is the essence of debt management.
