As a chronic recovering shopaholic, learning how to budget and avoid major shopping sprees was an incredibly difficult transition for me. When we first started learning how to budget, we didn’t allow ourselves any fun spending at all. Let me tell you, this is no way to live. If you are going to commit to major financial goals like paying off debt, it is crucial that you still allow fun and joy into your life despite what some experts might tell you. I’m so thankful that after some trial and error we were able to find that using Cash App was the absolute best way to leave some cushion in our budgets and allow us fun money spending!
