Stick To Cash To Avoid Overindulging At The Bar

Stick to Cash to Avoid Overindulging at the Bar

When we go to the bar to have just a few beers, sometimes the alcohol clouds our judgement and we drink more than we intended. Set a spending limit before by bringing only cash to the bar.

If you start with a set amount of money, once you run out of cash, you stop drinking. Sure friends can buy you a drink or pull out your credit card, but this is a nice way of controlling your spending habits when out. I'd suggest keeping a credit card with you in case your maths is off and you don't have enough cash to pay the bill, though.

    Paypass in bars is so goddamn bad haha.

    Good advise, it is much easier to budget with cash then card as you can physically see how much is leftover at anytime. With tap-and-go the transactions don't always appear straight away in pending on internet banking.
