Plastic is more convenient, but studies show we spend more when we swipe a card than when we pull green bills out of our pockets. When you make a purchase with cash, you have already accounted for the money coming out of your account and you genuinely feel your hard-earned money being spent.
This week challenge yourself to use cash only and let us know how it works for you. Did you spend less? Did you think more carefully about each purchase? Share with us on Facebook or Twitter.
