Notes From the Fieldby Martin Weil

How to eat and get healthy – use cash

The pain of paying in cash can curb spending on unhealthy foods, new research suggests. Shelling out your hard-earned moolah appears to put a crimp in buying “vice products,” such as cookies, ice cream, and chips.

That is MSNBC online reporting on a new study of purchase behaviors.

My conclusion: In addition to helping you spend less (for the same reasons cited in the article), you spend more wisely, or at least in your better interest, when using cash instead of plastic.
