  1. For both I would say challenge everything. From the tiniest transaction up to the mahoosive ones. At first it will be painful but then less so. Hopefully it will eventually become a habit and start controlling purchasing right at the source. And it all adds up.

    Also I try not to consider my self above anything. Just because you have an ok job doesn’t mean you can’t buy value food at the supermarket or drive a cheap car (or better yet cycle to work).

    Also know yourself. To stop bad habits it’s no use going cold turkey if you know that you will break and revert to old habits. Take it slow 🙂 . Of if you like a challenge then go for it, but make yourself accountable.

    • Great point on the bad habits Mr Zombie. Going cold turkey is hard in breaking addictions, but its almost always the approach people take to breaking their bad spending habits or addictions.

      Does anyone else think its better to start improving slowly, rather than tackling everything at once?

      I’m personally the other way in that I jump 100% into everything right away, but that obviously carries a lot of risk and I’ve found myself failing in many endeavours because I jumped in too quickly and didn’t take my time to understand everything and take a measured approach.
