Honor the Lord with your wealth

and your vats will overflow with good wine.

    or (union proverb)
    Honour the Labour party with your wealth
    and with the best part of everything you produce.
    Then they will bribe you with welfare
    and make unionism compulsory again.

      Eh?, may I suggest you give it a shot, eg for a year make regular donations to a registered charity or charities of your choice (it doesn’t have to be a church or other religious organisation if you’re not comfortable with that).

      A useful rule of thumb is 10% of after-tax income, but you might prefer to start with say 5%, or $x/month. The amount doesn’t matter but you do need to feel it a little bit.

      At the end of the year see how your income and expenses have panned out; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised (at the very least you’ll get 33% back via the IRD). :)
