What is Conscious Spending and why is it good practice?
It's not really about budgeting which has been some of the feedback I have received. Although spending your money wisely is definitely part of this process.
No the idea of consciously spending is about thinking where and how you spend that money. Often people will think how can my one little dollar make a difference? But it can, especially if everyone thought this!
When you spend your money in a business that is local, you give back to your community. When that business also considers the environment in the manufacturing process, you are helping the climate. When you purchase these wonderful products you get the opportunity to help community even more by selecting a business to donate to. This is all part of your sale.
So to consciously spend here with us, you will help Australian businesses, you will help the environment and you will help not for profit organizations that are doing amazing work.
