  • Set a daily, weekly, or monthly limit for each type of expense

Tips about Cash

  • Only carry a small amount of cash

    • A little is better than none (just in case)

    • If you don’t have it, you can’t spend it

  • Use cash for non-essential purchases

    • May help curb your spending

    • It’s easier to tell when you’ve reached your spending limit – because your wallet is empty

Tips about Credit Cards

  • Consider whether you really need a credit card, and don’t get one if you don’t need it

  • Use your credit card cautiously

    • Only for emergencies

    • Only for pre-determined expenses

    • Leave it locked up at home during non-essential shopping trips
