Other common phrases communicate the idea of having to cut things out or give things up from your spending plan. You might say, “I have to cut down on my dining expenses,” or “I have to give up my gym class.” When we cut something out or give something up from our lives, we go back to restrictive mode. It’s almost as if the expense is being pried from our hands. It feels like a loss or something that we wanted but don’t get to have anymore.

When we let go of an expense, on the other hand, it’s a completely different experience. The expense is just something extra that we didn’t need in the first place, and it falls away. When we reframe our language, our actions follow fairly effortlessly.

I like to use the analogy of an onion. The outer layers of an onion get crunchy and fall away pretty easily. These are expenses that we are ready to let go of. It might be something that we didn’t even know we were spending money on, or something that we were just buying out of habit. Whatever the expense is, we’re ready to let it go, so it happens pretty painlessly. It becomes easy to take a different route to work and pass on purchasing a morning muffin, or to avoid shopping for a few weeks. It’s not something that you have to consciously make yourself do, it’s just an easy shift.
