Only spent $5 today which is a first for me

August 25th, 2012 at 08:31 pm

My usual Saturday would include an automatic $50 spent by noon at the hair salon maybe another thirty to forty at a restuarant for lunch. Than no telling what other household products/groceries I'd need to pick up. I am very happy that I wrote my budget out on paper and kept cash in my pocket. I find it too easy to overspend money when i'm swiping my debit card. I'm more prone to think twice when I have to give up the cash out of my purse. I ended up spending $1 on chicken nuggets for my little one on our ride to the store. I had to purchase juice which cost me just a little over four dollars. However, $5 is a great number for me as I am determined to get out of debt.

    I am the same way. Spending cash leads me to be a lot more intelligent about my purchases than using a card, and offers me some insurance that I will think about what I'm taking out of my wallet. Smart move, and nice going!
