How to Break the Mindless Spending Cycle
We all do it.
It might be small amounts every day perhaps driving by to grab coffee and breakfast on the way to work or going out for lunch with colleagues. It could be those Amazon deliveries that show up at our doors, tucked away from necessities that we ordered.
Some people call it the spending leaking, impulse buying, mindless spending. The label doesn’t really matter – what does is understanding that we all have blind-spots. Little places in our finances where we know we’re spending something, but we’re not aware of just how much it is.
Inspired by the incredible site and story of Break the Twitch, I want to share some personal about how easy it was for us to slip into mindless spending and how we found a way to make sure they don’t sabotage our finances.

- finding your financial blind spots
- breaking the mindless spending twitch
- developing habits that can enrich us and allow us to spend better
Hope you enjoy!
