A Surefire Way to Put the Brakes on Spending

The easiest way to control your spending is to work out the real cost in dollars you need to earn to be able to afford what you are buying.  Find out what percentage of every dollar you earn goes in tax. Add this to the price of the item you want. You may find that $10 item you wanted will mean you need to earn $13.70 to be able to make the purchase.

How long do you have to work to earn $13.70?
