One day a few weeks ago, I received all of these coupon books in the mail. Sure, those coupons could save me a few dollars if we were to eat out but if I didn't have the coupons, I probably wouldn't go there anyway. It seems like having coupons for 'buy one get one free meals' or whatever else, makes me WANT to buy whatever it is. Like my mind thinks it will be such a good deal and I'd be wasting it if I let the coupon expire. Plus nothing in those restaurants is healthy.
So, when those things come in the mail, unless it's something that Im planning to spend my money on anyway, they go right in the recycling.
What are some ways that you avoid wasteful spending?
