How to con­trol our spend­ing

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Live! -

Ihope I don’t ap­pear a killjoy to re­mind us about this topic, specif­i­cally this “ber” months wherein we are pre­par­ing for our Christ­mas and New Year cel­e­bra­tions. But I’m sure, like me, you want that you still have enough money to get by hap­pily, right af­ter the New Year.

Here are some im­por­tant re­minders to con­trol our spend­ing: ex­cite­ment of shop­ping and find­ing a bar­gain. Stop and re­mem­ber past im­pulse pur­chases that you later re­gret­ted. To re­sist, slow down and think real­is­ti­cally about the long-term con­se­quences of buy­ing, own­ing and main­tain­ing what you are plan­ning to buy. Give your­self a “cooldown” pe­riod be­fore mak­ing your fi­nal de­ci­sion.
