Ok, funny (but pathetic) story. I was reading Dawns above comment and my mind read, “I will incorporate waiting 30 minutes before major purchase…” instead of 30 days. I sat and thought, “Yes, stopping and waiting 30 minutes would be a hard, but good, practice” So I went to the “Tips For Living Less” and saw it was 30 days, not minutes. I MAY have an impulsivity issue. Haha.
Learning to step back from wants until they are in the budget would be a rather big thing for me. Our monthly budget gets eaten up my seemingly small, impulse buys. We have tried to shave off as much from our monthly bills as possible, but I’ll take another look at things like cell phone, etc.
