Today I thought I would try something different, I guess you could call it a bit of an experiment. Over the years I’ve read of quite a few people actually “freezing” their credit cards in the freezer to prevent them from using the cards for impulse buying. The theory is that if your credit card is stuck in a block of ice, you have to wait for the ice to thaw before you can make any purchases, giving you time to think about what you’re buying.

Anyway, I decided to give this a shot with an old credit card, and recorded the process for all to enjoy.
