How My “Impulse Journal” Keeps Me From Overspending

In this episode, one person shows us the inventive journaling tactic she uses to avoid impulse spending.

Through weekly video essays, "Making It Work" showcases how *real* people have upgraded their personal or financial lives in some meaningful way. Making your life work for you doesn’t mean getting rich just for the sake of it. It means making the most of what you have to build a life you love, both in your present and in your future. And while managing money is a crucial life skill for everyone, there’s no one "right way" to go about it — you have to figure out what works best for *you,* full stop.
