The media encourages us to spend, spend, spend! It is so easy to shop without thinking. Now you have discovered your essential needs, every time you go shopping, consider what you are going to buy.
Is it on my essential list?
Do I really need a new pair of shoes?
Have I shopped around looking for the best price?
Should I remain on the book club whilst in debt?
Am I shopping to make myself feel better?
Learning new spending habits is hard, but it is better than treating the symptom of a debt problem.
‘But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you’ Matthew 6:33.
