#2Skip coffee before shopping.
A study shows that caffeine affects how much you spend and how many items you buy. During the experiment, people who drank a cup of coffee spent 50 percent more and bought about 30 percent more items than those who only drank decaf or water. Caffeine releases dopamine in the brain. That’s why we’re so excited and more inclined to make impulse purchases.
#3Set aside a small amount of money and hide it.
Many people use envelopes for this purpose. But if you prefer a locked safe or money box, use these instead. The main thing here is to hide the money out of sight and not think about it. You can start with very small amounts of money, e.g. B. a dollar or a few dollars a week.
Add $2 or more next week and so on through the end of the year. In this way, you will have more than $1300 this Christmas, which is enough to give many elegant gifts to your friends and family.
