See? Take cash shopping, not your debit card

I went to Walmart today and spent $54.00 on my debit card because I was too lazy to go to the atm and get $50, which is the weekly grocery budget. It’s true. It IS harder to control your spending when you don’t have a limit in sight.

Look what I got for free at Walmart!
