I'm going to be 100% honest here: I, Allison Baggerly, owner of a budget and personal finance company, have issues with overspending on my credit card!

It's very easy for me to just swipe, swipe, swipe until it's time for me to face my balance. And then I sit there thinking, "What did I do? How much money did I spend? How did I let it get out of hand?"

On top of that, when I start impulse spending on credit cards, I actually start to crave spending money even more! I can feel it in my body, I can feel it in my system. I want to spend the money. It's like a drug!

Maybe you can relate or maybe you're in the thick of the swipe cycle right now. If so, then I want you to know you're not alone. I've been there. AND there is hope! Although I do struggle with this, it doesn't happen often anymore. Why? I began to implement 2 easy action steps that help break me out of my impulse spending cycle, and today on the podcast, I'm going to be sharing those with you!
