The combination of a steady income, no huge financial responsibilities other than rent, and the ease of online shopping has meant that I have been spending money (and acquiring things) more quickly than I would like to.
I know I won’t put myself into debt over it, but I’d like to curtail the spending so that I can save for big things like travel or a future mortgage.
Plus the shipping, all the boxes, and just having stuff I don’t really need feels kind of wasteful.
I know a good solution is not to browse in the first place (even if all the shoes do look pretty…). So I’m wondering what strategies Homies might have when it comes to resisting impulse purchases either online or in a store. -Jackie
How do you dissuade impulse spending?
