When I took the Latte Factor Challenge, I decided that impulse shopping was my weakness. Every time I’d go shopping, I would load my shopping cart with little “extras”. Not realizing how much these little extras added up to be big extras, I started to add up the price of each item I really didn’t need. Then I’d put them back on the shelves and AUTOMATICALLY drive to the bank, which was on the way home anyway, and deposit the exact amount that I was going to spend on the impulse items.
It has been five months since I’ve started this and I now have over $3,500 in my savings account which I will be moving into an IRA account for my business–tax advantages and interest bearing!
