Tightening That Belt

| May 06, 2024

Are you getting ready for summer?

As spring draws to a close, many choose this time of year to start focusing on getting fit and trim for the summer. Could your spending habits benefit from a diet, too?

This is a great time to think about tightening the proverbial belt when it comes to shopping. Here are some ideas to help you cut back...

  • Use cash. It's always a little more "real" when you're actually watching the money leave your hands.
  • Avoid impulse shopping at the grocery store by making a list in advance and chewing gum while on site.
  • Do emails from your favorite stores entice you to shop too often? Hit "unsubscribe" and remove the constant temptations.
  • Before you spend money on a big ticket item, consider how many hours you must work to pay for it.
  • Wait at least 24 hours before making non-essential purchases. Does it still make sense a day later?
  • Be sure to compare prices before buying. Is there a coupon or lower price if you shop elsewhere?
