The following are powerful techniques that can be employed in making every expense made to be worth it: 1. cutting your budget on social needs 2. avoid any snob-appealing expense 3. always go for the most cost-effective alternative (establishing small quality-variance bench-mark, if any) 4. ncrease expenses more on interest bearing item than any other thing 5. establish the expected benefits of every desired expense using the canon of plus/minus/nil to standard of living value system.
