It’s all about how you are unable to control yourself from overspending as you can’t resist yourself from easy shopping.

Everything thing has a solution and we have these 3 Effective Mantras for you to follow in order to prevent overspending:

 Make Savings Account Your First Preference
Usually, people deposit their paychecks into checking accounts where their wages are readily available for spending and this is one of the examples of uncontrolled and unplanned spending of money. The remedy to this situation is preferring savings account over checking account and the reason is when you deposit the money into savings account the wages are not immediately available for spending. Once you deposit your paycheck into savings account, you can transfer the budgeted amount into checking account which helps you in preventing overspending.

Say “Yes To Cash” and “No To all Your Debit/Credit Cards”

There is one major advantage of using cash over transaction cards and that it doesn’t allow you to overspend because you can’t carry lots of cash every time , on the other hand credit/debit cards are easy to carry and offers you the freedom to spend freely as much as you can which clearly violates your will to stop overspending.  Cash must be used for routine expenses and it automatically helps you spending your money wisely and in a planned manner. If you are really serious about saving your money try not to use credit/debit until and unless you feel the urgency to use it.
