In today’s episode, I’m going to:
- Tell you about my meltdown with making Thanksgiving dinner for my son and his girlfriend because I forgot that money and food don’t buy love.
- And I’ll finish with the inspirational reading from the “Getting Out from Going Under Daily Reader for Compulsive Debtors and Spenders” — “I am Not My Money” (Time stamp 1:55)

Spending Plan Training
If you’re fearful about incorporating a spending plan into your life, remember that it’s a tool to help you make sane choices around money, not a torture device designed to deprive you.
Though a spending plan will not cure compulsive spending, there’s no question that it’s an essential tool for compulsive spenders trying to recover from the addiction.
But if you’re stalled or paralyzed in your attempts to create a spending plan or feel lost and overwhelmed about the process, I can assist you. I’m an expert in helping compulsive spenders overcome the emotional obstacles they face around creating and living with a spending plan, and I work with you to develop your spending plan foundation and teach you how to track your spending ongoing. Most people complete the process within three weeks.
Plus, for those who already use YNAB to track their spending, I can troubleshoot and fix problems you’re experiencing with your spending plan and provide one-on-one training around any issues you may have.
To set up a free 20-minute call to see if I can help you or to learn more about my training program, go to ICantStopSpending.com/training, and sign up for my (very occasional) newsletter and receive a free PDF version of the Five Year Recovery Journal (a $9.99 value).

You can order Thanksgiving dinner right from your own local grocery store! But here’s the cool directions that our store, Publix, posted for making sure the dinner you order is coordinated and all ready when your family is ready to eat. Love it! (Scroll down past the ordering information.)
Great, right?! 🙂
