Really, we are trading our future financial security for our immediate wants.
The good news? If we can short-circuit those spending urges, that’s an easy way to save.

Mindful spending simply means we should try to think before we spend. And analyze the urge. Often when we do that, we forget about it.
As an extra layer of protection, you can make a deal with yourself: commit to a purchase waiting period. If you’re still convinced you want that pair of shoes in a week, you can go ahead and buy it.
