One of the best memories that someone makes in his or her entire life is the memory of getting their first paycheck. Only those who have ever been able to receive a paycheck know the sheer happiness one gets when they hold the fruit of their countless hours of hard work. While there is no ?best? way to spend your paycheck, there are some things that give you immense happiness when you do them especially using your first paycheck. Some of these ways are mentioned below:-
1. Get a thing for your parents
It needn?t be the most expensive thing that you buy, just something of significance to your parents might work out just fine. Your parents are the first people who deserve anything out of your paycheck, some people give their entire paycheck to their parents, some give them a significant gift. It?s not about the gift, it is about the significant emotion behind it. Parents care for us long enough for us to stand on our own feet and face the world, they are the first to get something from your first paycheck.
2. Donate to a cause
There is no happiness as the happiness that is experienced after donating to a cause. The donations needn?t be just money. It can be gifts for children at orphanages, good food for the old people in old age homes, organize a party for slum children or donate some amount of money for a good cause. It really depends upon you and what gives you happiness.
3. Give wings to your passion
Many people are forced to do a job they don?t like while they leave behind their passion. A first paycheck could be a great opportunity to reignite that same passion. Buy that guitar that you always wanted, but that typewriter you always wished to type on. Buy that keyboard which will make you feel like Yiruma. Do something for the love of your passion that could be anything that you feel is significant to your love for your passion.
4. Treat to self
The most important person in this world is no one but yourself and there?s nothing to be ashamed of if you want to spend your first salary on yourself. Take yourself on a date and enjoy the delicacies of the most expensive restaurants in the world, go to amusement parks to ride your favourite, go with your girlfriend to watch your favorite romantic movie. The money is yours and you can choose to do anything with it as long as it makes you happy.
5. Clear your Debt
There couldn?t be anything more significant than clearing your debt with your first salary. Independence from toxicity such as debts give another level of happiness. Clear all your debts and then become independent like you are not bound by anyone anywhere and if there is anything left after paying dues, enjoy using the money and toast yourself, celebrate yourself because for the first time the money is entirely yours.
