Got A Tip?


Got a Tip?


Learn the difference between wanting something and needing something. If you think you need something wait a few days and you will discover you just want it.

That's a good habit to follow when it comes to extras. (Don't wait on buying food, toothpaste, toilet paper, etc.!) I do this for almost all of my "extra" purchases, even online. I'll put something in the "shopping cart" and let it sit for a few days, since most online retail shops will save that info. This is especially important for online shopping as it's so easy to just click and buy! Too effortless!
