What do You do to Save Money?
Jan-Tore Øvrevik, Director of Development, T4E

We live in a time where our younger generation has started taking our wealth as granted. The good habits of saving money in the piggy bank and the bank are fading in favor of spending more money on the wish list than need list. All media is constantly on their mission to catch consumers' attention to buy products and to build dreams. We want to be part of the trends, the fashion and the glamour. In all this, we easily let our temptations go beyond the good habits of saving. Forgotten is what our older generations have taught and passed on to younger generations for centuries by being careful with money.

Though many are struggling, the trend is that our older generation is also getting a more carefree and careless attitude with their money and savings. In all our wealth, all generations tend to forget that it may not last forever. Money may come easy, but we should not let it go that easy.

Solution for Economic Growth

The economic growth of a country consists of many factors, like inflation, unemployment, debt levels, fiscal policies, import and export of goods etc. Your government and authorities are elected to plan and keep your country in a healthy economic state. But what about your own personal economic growth? What plans have you made and what actions have you taken to secure your or your family's future?

People may try to save money by putting them in savings account, investing in funds, stocks, real estate and similar, or maybe even hide their money in their mattresses. The shared value is to save money to have in rainy days or to increase the value of existing money.

People's Habits

Most people live and spend for today and don't think of tomorrow. Many like to come up with excuses for not saving money, like our income is low and our living cost is high. The thing is that many of us like to retain our living standard or live a little above what is economical healthy. We like the freedom of going out shoppping, eating out, going for vacations etc. We may live in big houses or drive exclusive cars with accordingly high loans and interest payments. If you are one of many others who have problems saving money to keep up with your life style, you would be amazed of how fast you actually would be able to save money by smaller sacrifices.

Let's say you are a family of four and you like to eat out three times a week. In average you pay 60 Euros each time you go to the restaurants. If you decreased the number of times to eat out till once a week where you instead will cook at home at a cost of 10 Euros for the meal, you will in one month (four weeks) spend 400 Euros less. This money can be saved, invested or be put into something that can give you value back later in life.

What Trees4Expenses can Offer You

Trees4Expenses is not a bank or investment company, but we offer biological assets that you can buy and receive return from. Based on our calculations, you can by buying our mahogany trees that grow in value, be able to get all your money back for all of your household expenses within 17 years. What will this cost you? You need to sacrifice and spend 7.5% of your household cost to buy mahogany trees from us. In year 10, you will receive back the cost of the trees (7.5%). In year 17, you will recieve 100% back the expenses you had for your household. In a way, you turn all your household expenses into a future return of the same amount.

You decide yourself on our website what household expenses you want to have a future return on, based on how much you are willing to sacrifice.

Let's say you want money back from 2,000 Euros of your monthly household expenses. You will then spend 7.5% of 2,000 Euros equals 150 Euros to buy trees (we use Euro as a currency, but the calculation will be the same in other currencies). In year 10 you receive the tree cost back (150 Euros). In year 17, you receive 2,000 Euros in return for your household expenses. If you buy the same amount of trees every month, you would in year 17 receive 24,000 Euros (2,000 Euros in household expenses x 12 months).

If we continue on with our example where you sacrifice a couple of visits to the restaurants each week. you may be able to increase your assets of money by 400 Euros each month. You can choose to spend 150 Euros of them on trees, and put the rest of the money into other different saving or investment plans. That way, you have different options for risk management, in case something goes wrong.
