Just thought I would share another motivation I have used this week.
I often pay for things using my contactless card, which means it was easy last night to track occasional small spends at local shops using my bank statements. Most of these spends are for a few essential items (such as milk, or onions) and then addictive, processed food bought on impulse.
I worked out that between the beginning of May and now, I have spent £115 on crap food – so probably around £1,300 a year on food I do not need and that is making me ill – and not money I can really afford as I am self-employed.
That is definitely one of the ‘consequences’ I’ll be reminding myself about when I next go shopping!
