Week 2 - you can only spend what isn't allotted for bills.
So if you have money to spend let's talk about ways to spend wisely.
Don't make impulse purchases over $10
If you are trying to be careful but you spend $50 here or $35 there you will quickly blow through your money. Try to keep a mental list of things you legitimately need then focus on finding those items rather than mindless spending.
Target clearance is one of the easiest ways I get things for a decent price. I like to buy for my boys a seasons/size ahead when things are 70% off clearance. I've gotten jeans for $4.98 and shorts for $1 in the past doing this. Toy shopping is great after Christmas for the next year as well.
I love amazon! So I always look for prices there before buying in stores to be sure I can't get it at a better deal! I have an amazon Prime membership so I never pay for shipping and things come fast!
