Stop, think and don’t spend


So in an effort to figure out why I feel like I need to buy buy buy all the time.  I made a little sticky note of my debt total and put it on my debit card, to remind me each time I am tempted to just spend a little.  So far it’s working. 

I didn’t waste $ on fast food this past weekend and ate at home and it felt good.  I didn’t spend on some scrapbook supplies on ebay, instead I decided I didn’t need them that badly.  I didn’t buy this cute little sign on etsy, I decided I save that for another time.  I went to the grocery store and did not end up buying my kids some little toys and things they don’t need.  All in all I feel good about it.  Small steps make things happen easier.
