It is no small matter to try to avoid the temptation to spend money! It is one thing to make a conscious decision to stay out of the shops, but it is another to have to battle your way through the offers in one's inbox in the email account!
Just in the last two days, I have had several notifications from Approved Foods of new things which have come into stock, an invitation from the Book People to take advantage of a 10% off event, and scores of other emails from companies which I deal with, trying to prod me into visiting their websites and parting with some money....
Whilst I would say that the easiest answer is to unsubscribe from all these temptations, the reality is that I do take advantage of some of these offers occasionally, and I rely on some of these companies to tell me when they are having sales because I don't visit their websites very often.
But this month, the quickest way to avoid the lure is to delete the email quick smart!
