Financial decision-making occurs on an almost constant basis. Overcoming spending temptations from ads, planning for fixed and variable expenses and accounting for your daily needs all consider the concept of spending. After obtaining the Spending badge, you should:
- Be able to develop a spending plan.
- Track your spending habits.
- Understand what it means to live within your means.
- Know the social and environmental impacts of your spending decisions.
