29: Want to Save Money? Practice Gratitude. Here's How to Make it Work for You.
Do you tend to spend more money when you are stressed? Maybe you spend money as a way to celebrate? This episode is for you if a good stroll down the clearance aisle is your favorite dopamine hit!
Gratitude is one of those words that gets thrown around with not a lot of context behind it. So, when I say that practicing gratitude will help you save money, you might be highly skeptical. Or you might be thinking… yeah, I make a list of what I’m grateful for, but I do not see any difference in my bank account.
