Days without spending money: 0/365
Yep, having a tough time with that spending thing. So why am I tracking the number of days that I do not spend money this year? Because I read somewhere, someone saying that this year they were going to only purchase things they really need, and try not to spend money unless absolutely necessary. This sounds like a fantastic idea to me and, since I’ve been toying with making some career changes, it would be helpful to be mindful about my spending. But really, I didn’t think it would be that difficult to go a day without spending.
I blame technology – well, it’s my fault for using technology, but the ability to add my credit cards to my phone, have websites save payment methods, just that one step of “not” having to pull out the purse, dig out the plastic, squint my eyes and punch in 16 digits, well, it makes it way too easy to spend without thinking.
Had technology made it difficult for you to be mindful of your spending?
