Tell me, does this scenario sound a bit familiar to you… You run into Walmart because you ran out of Milk/bread or any other basic necessity and as you’re running to the back of the store to grab a gallon, you pass by a rack of jeans on sale for $8-10 a pair.
You think to yourself, :118: “WHOA, I can’t afford NOT to buy these, they’re practically giving them away, they’re only $10!”.
So you add that $10 to the cart. A little later in the day, you swing into Starbucks for a mocha frappuccino, there’s another $4.
You’ve just bargained shopped your way deeper into debt.
:017: Do you know how easy it is to lose $5,000 ?
It takes just $13.69 per day. So while these little purchases may seem like great deals or big bargains, it can be a pitfall for your budget.
I challenge you to keep a small envelope in your purse or above the visor in your car. Anytime you spend ANY money, slip the receipt into that envelope. At the end of 1 month, go through and add up all of the unnecessary items, or “Bargain” items, convenience items such as that frappuccino that you had to have on your way home.
😯 It may be a Real Eye Opener! :119:
