Since I was a teenager, I have worked part-time in order to cover my bread and butter, in order for me to spend most of my time in my career as an unpaid volunteer. One of the questions that has helped me countless times over the years is:
Do I really NEED this…or do I simply WANT it?
Taking a double check has kept me in the black, and it has also meant that occasionally my savings build up to allow me to afford a little treat.
But there are times when something dazzles me….and even though I know it is not a need, I can’t stop thinking about it!
I am going to have to fall back on my second tactic that helps keep my spending in check…
WAIT THREE MONTHS AND THEN ASK IF IT STILL HAS THE SAME APPEAL.
