Ask Before Spending

This Sparked Me!

Before buying anything, ask if you need it or merely want it. It's OK to occasionally buy something we don't need to "treat" ourselves, but most of us could look around our homes and wonder why we wasted money on things we rarely use, were a fad, or purchased impulsively..... (more)
