This Sparked Me!

Write out your budget then give yourself an amount to spend once you spend that money you wait until you get paid again and give yourself another allowance. It's what i do and it works for me.

    I do the same.

    This is what I do too. I allow myself to spend 40.00 per month on things I want (nonessentials like dining out or going to the movies or something on sale that I don't really need just then but probably will later).

Leave encouragement, a question, or anything else relevant to this. All comments must abide by SparkPeople's Community Guidelines.
