I‘m excited to be a regular contributor over at Money Your Way and started over there writing about a simple trick I’ve learned to keep myself from spending needlessly. From the post:
When I look through the closets in my house, I see items that haven’t been worn more than one or two times. A bread maker still in the box that I swore would save us money on bread. Coupons printed for items I don’t really use.
Oh, you too?
Honestly, I’m not someone who believes every purchase has to be a need but I do find that spending hard earned money on items that we value brings us more long term joy than the impulse purchases that were “such a great deal”.
A few months ago, I found the common theme amongst my overspending: I didn’t even know most of these deals existed until I checked my Inbox or mailbox.
