Spending money wisely is important to lead a good life. It is tempting to spend it right away on something fun but not necessary, but if we can save up the money for better usage, the benefits are greater. Thus, I personally think it is better to save my money for some time in the future.
Firstly, by saving up my money, I can spend it on something bigger and more beneficial. Instead of buying a comic book worth 400JPY every week, for example, I can buy an over 10,000JPY laptop in one year. By saving up my money little by little, I can have a bigger money pool in the end that can be invested something big, such as buying a house or studying abroad, things that bring greater benefits to me. Thus, I think it is better not to spend the money right away.
Secondly, putting some time to think about before purchasing prevents me from getting unnecessary stuff. By putting time, I can be more thoughtful about the usage of the money and avoid wasting my money. I experienced moving on my impulse when I went to the big sale and ended up getting clothes that I never wore. If I had been wise enough to put one day or two days to think over the purchase, I would not have bought them. From this experience, I believe it is better to save up money for wiser use in the future.
For the reasons discussed above, I think it is better to save my money for the future use. By saving up little by little, I can invest something more beneficial and also by putting time before getting something, I can better spend my money.
