Between Monday and Thursday, we exercise regularly, eat properly and budget consciously. But we struggle to avoid our guilty pleasures on the weekend. Friday through Sunday we can down a several pints of ice cream, our entire wine rack, skip the gym and blow our budget. That’s not money conscious or health conscious.
The Guilty Pleasures Tips
That’s why we’ve created a tip to ensure we have a “F.U.L.” weekend every weekend. Full stands for Free, Use and Limit
- F – Fill your weekend with FREE activities so you spend less money
- U – USE your budgeted money and only your budgeted money
- L – LIMIT your play and know when enough is enough
With this tip to have a “F.U.L.” weekend, we’ve stopped going overboard and succumbing to our guilty pleasures. This has helped us to control our budget and our diet.
