I'm very much a "I want the candy placed directly in my face" kind of gal. If I see "take an extra 40% sale items," you better believe I'm clicking that link and getting excited over a possible deal. I may not even need it, but it's on sale, and it's a deal, and I want it, and there's room on my credit card so why can't I have it? As a friend of mine once said fairly recently, "I'll find a way to pay for it later." Well later is here. And the bucks need to stop here.
So if you're trying to make a healthier start, whether it be food, money, or fitness - remove the temptations. For me, it's about unsubscribing to shopping emails and going through my wallet and handing my credit cards over to hubby to keep in a safe, unbeknownst to me, place.
