Weekly Round-Up: Consumer Product News

Consumers have a range of products, goods and financial products constantly at their disposal. However, the temptation can be too much! Budgets are easily blown. In this Weekly Round-Up, we will look at consumer product news and how to avoid overspending.

Consumer Product News Headlines

As you can tell, there is a range of products reviewed in the above headlines. Entertainment, financial products, tech and more are just a few examples in the consumer product news. Additionally, these categories often cause financial grief to Americans racking up consumer debt.

Here are some tips to avoid overspending and sticking to the budget.

  • Avoid impulse shopping. Sleep on it and see if the purchase is truly worth it.
  • Don’t upgrade your technology at a moment’s notice. Wait til it breaks or doesn’t work properly enough.
  • Make a budget and stick to it.
  • Plan out SMART financial goals.
  • Pay down debt as quickly as you can- Debt Snowball or Debt Avalanche.
  • Actively save.
  • Have an emergency fund.
  • Don’t use credit cards unless you can pay off the balance every month.
  • Find cheaper entertainment options to fit in the budget. Check local movie theatres for discount screenings, for example.
