How to Control Spending When You’ve Got Your Debt Under Control

Standard

I’ve paid off my debt. My bank account balance is healthy again. I am spending too much. I see things, and because I have the money, I buy them. Yes, I needed a bag (sort, of) and yes I bought a beautiful one, but is it worth the $200 price tag. I’m afraid my spending habits will just land me back in debt I can’t pay off in a few months – and not sure what to do.

I think I am one of those people that just should not have a credit card, and simply opt for a debit credit card, in which I can still make on-line purchases for things like flights and such, but it only lets me spend money I have. Yes, that might be the best way. People think we need credit cards to build up credit, but I think the whole notion of credit scores is kind of overrated. Perhaps because I already own, and so I am coming from a different perspective, and I just think that the cycle that credit cards put us in are vicious! It never allows us to get ahead!
