A new benchmark for purchasing decisions….

I read about this technique one person had applied when deciding on the purchases that they were making. Their big question before purchasing something…… “Would I buy this if I lost my job yesterday?” Wow, a little drastic….a little thought provoking….a little scary. But also a very interesting concept, if you applied this way of thinking for one day…one week….one month. When the answer was “No” to that question, you would apply that same amount of cash towards your debt instead of making the purchase, where would that lead you?

I am game to try it….if anyone else tries this let us know what happens for you.
