Credit or debit cards are convenient, but you don't see your shrinking bank balance with every purchase.
If you use mobile banking or money management apps while using your card, and it’s working, keep doing your thing. Otherwise, you might want to consider withdrawing a fixed amount of cash for your spending.
An expiration date on a food item does not mean it can no longer be consumed. Dried goods, such as cereal, uncooked pasta and dried beans fall into this category. Raw meat or bread can be stored in the freezer for some time.

We are more susceptible to buying stuff we don’t need when we are hungry. The same goes for a leisurely grocery trip.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
