Using credit cards has become part of our daily lives.

Examine Your Spending Habits and See How Much Cutting Out your Credit Card Will Save
You probably know you need to sit down and figure out where your money is going but have you actually done it? Prepare yourself with at least three months worth of credit card statements to see where you are spending. It is very easy to rack up credit card debt as you don’t physically see the money you are spending.
Are there items that you can easily cut out without noticing it too much? Do you stop and buy a coffee on your way to work or get breakfast? Maybe you buy lunch each day or bring treats for your coworkers weekly? These are things that you can likely cut out without too much adjustment. You probably have a coffee maker at home; you can program it so it doesn’t require much effort beyond filling it with grounds the night before. You can make lunch in five minutes or make a bit extra for supper and take leftovers to work the next day, especially if you have access to a microwave. If you can’t be bothered to make something, you can buy ready made items at the grocery store that will be cheaper than going out.
Ask yourself How Much Does your Credit Card Cost You?
While you may be using your credit card a lot due to rewards, you are spending more in the long run. Add up how much you have paid in interest in comparison to value of what you earned in a year for rewards; which is a better return? The credit card is still handy to have, and sometimes a requirement, but move to cash instead.
Living in a Cash World
One of the biggest reasons that cash works is that you have to physically see it and touch it. For this reason, you tend to be more reluctant to spend it. Give yourself an allowance each week, based on a budget that you create, and stick to it. Want that lunch out? That is fine, but will you have enough money to get you through the rest of the week? Don’t put your groceries on your credit card, instead, set a weekly or monthly spending budget and add up what you are buying as you go through the store. If you are over the amount you set aside, you can leave something behind or sacrifice something elsewhere.
Learning new habits when it comes to your spending is difficult to do but credit card debt is something that will hurt you going forward. Just because the banks are willing to give you credit doesn’t mean you should use it.
