Here you are doing your best to stick to budget but yet kept going to Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s and all the other stores where you can do some impulse buying.  That is not going to help with sticking to budget.  yes, it’s only $3.00 or maybe $5.00 but how many of those $3.00 items have you already purchased?  Yes, exactly, they all add up.  Next thing you know, you have accumulated $150.00 worth of items.  Here’s my advice, if you have to get it at that moment, please remember to keep all the receipts because if you realize that it isn’t a necessity, you have a great chance of returning it and get a full refund and feel good about trying to sticking to budget.

Have a great Hump Day!
