The Financial Freedom Diaries


Jun 11, 2018

…in which I describe the one idea that I have found actually makes me not only put down the junk and walk away, but feel good about it. Too good to be true? Listen and find out.

You will have one of these – it may be identical to mine, it may be different…it’s that one shop or store that gives you an instant common sense-ectomy the minute you walk in. “Budget – what budget?” You murmur, seduced by the rows and rows of junk.

*What the compulsive spending is trying to achieve for you psychologically

*The link between clutter and compulsive spending
