Cash And Carry

Leave the ATM/Visa card at home when going shopping. Get and carry cash. Once the cash is gone, the spending is done. This practice will help you stay in budget with groceries, clothes and daily convenience store stops.

    Our budget actually is set up for each of us to get a certain amount of cash every two weeks. I really think this was a key element to making the budget work. It "frees" us to be more responsible and independent. My husband does not have to beg for money for a hair cut. He just needs to make sure he spends his cash on his hair cut when he wants it. And then he also knows that when his cash is gone, there is no more until the next pay period.
