  10. 10. CONTROL Impulse Spending in 30 days.<br />Whenever you feel the urge to splurge — whether it’s for new shoes, a new videogame, or a new car — force yourself to stop. If you’re already holding the item, put it back. Leave the store.<br />When you get home, take a piece of paper and write down the name of the item, the store where you found it, and the price. Also write down the date.<br />Now post this note someplace obvious: a calendar, the fridge, a bulletin board.<br />If, at the end of a month, the urge is still there, then consider purchasing it. <br />
