How to spend less money online

COVID-19 has made many of us switch to online shopping. But did you know that even before the pandemic one study found that online shopping was the #1 culprit for overspending?

If you shop online, try leaving the items in your cart for 24 hours before hitting the checkout button to see how much less you spend. There’s a good chance that by the time you come back you’ll realize that your purchase doesn’t align with your goals and values (financial, social, and environmental), or that you just don’t need it.
