And remember: no matter where you’re spending, the key to shopping smart is all about being mindful of your budget and making sure to stay on top of your payments – particularly if you’re choosing to pay later or split your payments.  Calendar reminders, smart banking apps and mobile alerts can all be a great start to keeping your money memory on track; check out our Mindful Money blog post for more.
