On the debt free journey, it’s recommended that you abstain from purchasing unnecessary items so that you can put all of your financial power behind paying off debt. Alternatively, if you are going to buy something new, make sure that you have a budget category for it - whether that’s personal money, spending money, shopping money, or a household goods line item. If it’s a pricey product, set up a sinking fund for it. As long as it is accounted for in your budget, you can go to Target and scan ‘til your heart's content. Here are 5 items that I swear by. Their prices range from $20 to $799 and they have helped me live a better life throughout my debt free journey.
