In "The Recovering Spender", Lauren Greutman asks us to consider a budget as a "fence around our money" that gives us boundaries when it comes to spending (something she deems especially important for anyone who has difficulty containing compulsive spending).
This week's question for discussion:
What do you think about budgeting? Do you find it helps direct spending behavior? Why? Why not?
We have signed a copy of "The Recovering Spender" to give away to those who participate (pictured above).
