Unhappy Shopping “Impulsively”

Always consider the consequences when shopping “Impulsively”

Questions to ask yourself first

DO I NEED IT?
If your honest answer is no, think about the things that you “really do” need.

CAN I AFFORD IT?
Tell yourself, if I have the extra cash yes but, If you have to reach for that credit card then you can’t afford it.

DO I HAVE SOMETHING THAT WILL DO JUST AS WELL A HOME?
Re-evaluate what you have at home already and decide if this will fit your needs. If not, pack it up and give to charity.

FIND A CHEAPER, MORE REASONABLE SUBSTITUTE.
Knock-Offs, need I say more…

HAVE I REALLY FOUND THE BEST DEAL?
It takes time and effort but comparison-shopping does make a difference.

AM I WILLING TO WAIT?
Play a game with yourself and walk to the opposite side of the store, wait 15 min.’s, then decide if it is really worth it. Now a sale can really mess with your good sense of judgment. Simply getting away from the situation for a couple of minutes (or days) can do wonders. Have you ever noticed that you require your children to be patient but rarely put the same requirement on yourself?

WHAT IF I DON’T WAIT?
Think about the consequences, how you’ll feel, does it make you “feel” better to buy something? Do you have any underlying issues that you may need to address?

WHAT WILL THE CONSEQUENCES BE FOR MY ACTIONS?
Make a list of what the consequences will be if you buy that $50.00 purse or shoes. If it's paying the rent, the consequence is the bank will be calling you looking for their money. If it’s buying groceries for the family, they go hungry. I think are easy enough to answer.

If you don't know the answer to these questions, please don’t use that old saying “what I don’t know won’t hurt me”, take it from someone whose been there and done that… it eventually will.

Thanks, Karen Armacost
