Being home with the Covid 19 requirements, caused me to spend more. Business was slower, minimal interaction and more time on my hands, cause me to spend more. Not a good thing.
Once I made this realization, I needed to take action. First, I had to understand that because something is a good buy, doesn’t mean I need it. This was a big step. Next, I eliminated apps on my phone and unsubscribed from emails from companies, reducing the temptation to spend.
Now before I buy something, I ask myself do I really need this? Is this something I would have bought without a sale? If the answer is “yes”, then I make the purchase.
