You’re not wrong to think that the wisest use of money is through keeping it in a savings account. That does not mean it’s the only way. You can have fun with the money you worked hard to earn, and everything you spend can be for a good cause.
Here are some productive uses for your money:
You’ve already got the real estate; now, you can have the cars, as well. Residents of New Zealand love their vehicles, and you can buy plenty of new and used cars for sale in Tauranga dealerships for a reasonable price. Don’t worry about the idea that the vehicle depreciates as soon as it leaves the dealership; if you care for it and maintain it through the years, it can still fetch a good sum if you decide to sell. And if you don’t, then it can remain in your collection and make you a happy owner.
Every Kiwi considers homeownership as an important part of starting a family. Don’t stop at finishing the mortgage payments. You can make improvements to the house to keep its value high so that you can sell it for a good price if you decide to move to a different neighbourhood. You can also take advantage of the land and have a granny flat constructed. This can be rented out to give you a source of income.
New Zealand residents are innovative. You will see new startup companies opening every so often. Your neighbourhood could benefit from a new cafe, deli or art gallery. If you open a business and work hard on marketing it to the community, you will soon find yourself a happy owner of a successful enterprise, which earns you more money in the long run.
The key is to use your money so that it gives you more than what you spend. Anything that makes you happy and fulfilled can be considered a wise choice.
