(I recently wrote this on tPF but I decided to post this here as well, in case someone else needs some inspiration.) My budget is definitely going to be in the red this month, so I shouldn’t be shopping this month anymore.
There are a few articles I’ve saved that are a good kick in the rear when I’m feeling a bit too spendy… this mostly pertains to shopping, buying name brands, etc. I subscribe to a personal finance blog by Gail Vaz-Oxlade (you’ve probably seen her on that ‘Til Debt Do Us Part TV show?) I really do like her advice. Check it out!
