    Interesting comparison! I find I have to keep a close eye on myself as well but regarding food about celebrations and/or emotions. Generally, when I get good news about something the first thing I want to do is celebrate with food. I don’t have a problem with my weight but I could see it becoming an issue if I don’t curb my behavior. Sometimes it’s the little things that are preventing me from really buckling down and excelling at my financial goals.

    I have to agree that spending is not usually the problem. Once I figured out why I spent money, paying off debt and getting back in control was much easier than before.

    Funny, paying off the debt isn’t the hard part…staying debt free after that is often more of a challenge. You’re right about finding the root of the problem and I like the idea of a visual aid to keep you on target!
