How to Control Impulse Spending
Are you a shopaholic? Do you often suffer from buyers remorse? Well, I am and I do. I love shopping as much as the next girl but I hate to see my bank account suffer as a result. I recently decided to start taking control of my spending. I would go on a bit of a shopping binge just because I was bored then after I would feel bad about the money I spent. If you ave ever felt the same way try this:
- If you want to make a purchase, sleep on it! Try to cut back on impulse spending. You might think you need those new pair of shoes or the newest Essie polish shade but give it some thought.
- When you feel like making a purchase, think about it for about a week or at least a couple of days. Do you still want it after those days are up? Chances are you won't!
Try waiting at a least 48 hours before making a final decision on a purchase. Give it a try and give your bank account a little break :-)
