Using credit or debit card irresponsibly

If your loved one is using a credit or debit card irresponsibly, and can’t remember what they’ve bought, try giving them cash, say $100, and help them go shop so they can enjoy the experience and have some control. If you can stop online shopping, or buying from TV shopping channels, their savings will go a lot farther.
