It's impossible to stop spending completely, but you can stop ___uncontrolled___ spending, or ___curtail___ it. You really need to set up a ___budget___; just take a look at how much money you bring home in your __paycheck___, and write down everything you spend on a piece of paper. The aim is to get a ___handle___ on how much money you are bringing in and where it is going. Whether you use plastic or __pull cash____, record what you bought, where you bought it, and how much you ___spent___. At the end of the month it's a real __eye-opener____. You'll see a whole lot of ___cutting___ you can do.

Hi Simon, is it possible to give us each time the transcript of the audio? I think it would be helpful to learn something more from this practice by collecting and learning useful phrases and vocabularies in this lecture and else.


From the passage, I found the phrases below are quite useful:

set up a budget
get a handle on
use plastic
pull cash out of your pocket
it’s a real eye-opener
cutting

And I also heard something good in the audio file, and I want to make sure whether what I heard is right or not.

Thanks.
