I don't know about you, but I tend to overspend... a lot. Part of that has to do with my upbringing, my parents never taught us to save so when I started paying for things myself I tended to go overboard. This is a habit I've been struggling with for years now. I have a sizeable chunk of consumer debt (credit cards) and with my student loans adding up I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
Somehow though I still slip up and buy things. I'm normally pretty good about allowing myself the odd treat (I set aside $25 a paycheck that I can use on whatever I want) so I don't go crazy, but I find it harder to resist things the more time I spend on blogs/watching YouTube. Limited edition products have been my Achilles heels for ages so I try to avoid the stores that sell them. Seeing cute outfits on YouTubers makes my closet seem dull and haul videos tend to make me want to keep up with the Jones'.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any tips/tricks for avoiding a spending splurge?
