If you’re still having trouble avoiding spending money, here is a small tip:
Think of things in terms of what you could buy if you don’t spend the money on a whim.
For example, buying a meal from Chick-fil-a costs roughly $6.35. Instead, you could go out for frozen yogurt twice with some friends. You could put the money towards a new jacket to keep you from freezing to death during winter.
You could use the money to do two separate loads of laundry instead of cramming all the clothes you own into a single washer and dryer.
The bottom line is that if you think twice about your purchase, you’ll probably end up saving money.
