Implementing a spending freeze when the sales are on has been quite the challenge, but, as it turns out, it’s actually a lot easier than I anticipated to break bad spending habits and embark on new ones. Whether that’s apps, spreadsheets, mental notes or a scribble in the diary, the very act of keeping a running total of what you spend is just one of the tricks I’ve discovered that makes it much easier to spend less (or nothing, in my case) and save more.
