This came up on my newsfeed via FB this morning and since it was written by someone who resides in my province and who is an alumni of my university I thought I would give it a read.

Some basic stuff, but things I figure could be important to remember.

Thanks Jackie - i scanned the article

Makes some good points. I was thinking about something like this after spending time with people that spend and then are upset because they are "in the red'

Most is emotional and recreational spending.

Good tips. I just wonder if the intended audience is made up of people who stop and actually read the article or read anything at all!

I personally liked the idea of thinking of all the times that I bought x and never wore it before I make the purchase.

I'm really trying to stop unnecessary spending

Thought about going to go get a haircut but nope - looks good

Thought about the pedicure - nope - toes look good

I just keep replaying the things people tell me about their mindless shopping while they try to save money - does that compute?
