Ask yourself, "Is this a need or a want?"

Wants: take a second to find out if you really want it or if you should save the money for a need or a bigger want.

If you NEED it than see if there is a cheaper one available.

    I do this everytime! Even if its something that I do really want, I try to think of the money situation and what I NEED more; I always say "I could always get this "want" next time we get paid" And then it turns out that I didnt really want it to begin with, its just something thats nice to have that I probably wont use or take care of easily. :D :D so I save moneyt that way!
