Curb Your Urge to Splurge

Week 2 Day 3

Irma realizes there is not just one way to track her holiday spending, there are at least 6 different ways to do that."Track by store" is the best tracking method for some families.  Set up files or envelopes with the names of all your favorite stores and keep your receipts in the appropriate place.  You may have titles such as grocery store, clothing store, toy store and restaurants.  Another tracking method is to set up a "fun account"; this can be a checking or savings account.  You put a set amount of money into this account each month and that is what you have to spend for the holidays.  If you put in $50 per month, then you have a $600 spending limit for the holidays.  #Curbyoursplurge
