Put away the debit cards and only carry cash you can actually see the money being spent. Debits cards and credit cards make it way to easy

Whenever I see something I just have to buy it! It feels like I'm addictied to spending even if its like 10 I have to spend it! I don't have a job I'm a stay at home mom! so I ask my hubby for money he has never said anything but I feel he is getting annoyed of my habit!

A budgeting class may work. Also I agree that putting up the cards could help and carry a budgeted amount of cash.

Im not sure. Everyone is saying put away the cards... well, for me , its the opposite. If I have cash I spend it. Good luck!

Extreme shopping is a sign of depression. Not saying you are, but I know I get in moods and then I shop feverishly. Then my husband will go and return most of it especially if it's clothes for the girls.....That just started because my kids have four huge dressers and a ginormous closet full of clothes. lol. No cards is what my husband has resorted to. lol

I was the same way until I kept losing money until I lost my wallet in Target, and now I am too afraid to carry cash.
