“Pay yourself first and put it where you can’t touch it.”


“Waiting a day or two before making a large purchase to see if its really what I want.”


“I don’t carry cash. Instead of driving [I take] Uber. [It] saves on insurance and gas.”

“Automatic deductions to a savings account!”

“Write down everything in a notebook (all expenses).”

“Use different folders for different types of expenses.”
