As much as I’d like to call myself frugal, there are definitely purchases I make from time to time that are ‘questionable’ in their justification. Despite these minor ‘must have moments’, I am always sure to never lose sight of something my father always instilled in me at a young age: budgeting! I was often reminded, if you don’t have the cash for it, then you shouldn’t be buying it. Thankfully those words still ring loud and clear as an adult but I must admit, it can be difficult at times to walk away from an item which may be ‘out of reach’ at the moment. For times when your inner fashion conscience isn’t doing its duty, there are Paymobile pre-paid Visa cards.

The concept is simple: order a card, personalize it, load it with an amount you’re comfortable spending and once it arrives in the mail: shop away! This card is all about smart spending. So whether you like to abide by seasonal clothing budgets (a habit of mine), are hoping to set boundaries on the upcoming gift giving season or are looking to give a fab gift – it has a plethora of uses. I had the pleasure of using one of the pre-paid cards to knock off some of my essentials for the winter season. My picks? A pink pastel coat for the dreary weather (I blame the Glitter Guide style sessions shoot) and an embellished cardigan.

I’m curious: what do you do to keep your shopping habits in check?
