Consumer vs Producer Mindset: Getting a Discount is not Producing


There are people who talk about saving money by using discounts. That’s not saving money, that’s spending, that’s consumerism.

I know we think saving money on expenses is productive, but fundamentally, it’s still a consumer mindset. 

Consuming is simply paying money for some good or service.

Producing is creating value that others want to consume. If your focus is on spending, even if it is “saving” some spending, it’s still consumerism.
