6 Ways to Stop Impulse Buying
Impulse buying is the main cause of ruining our budget and causing the death of our bank account. Yes, on the spur of moment, we can’t seem to live without that particular thing, only to realize later that there was absolutely no need for it. You are probably never even going to use it. So here are 6 ways to stop yourself from impulse buying.
1. Don’t shop when you are upset
Shopping often helps us to cheer up. Hence, while shopping in a bad mood, we tend to purchase much more things than we would in a normal mood.
2. Shop with a frugal person
Such a friend or relative will never let you waste your money on unnecessary things. He or she will always remind you of the more important things that you actually need and for which you are saving up your money.
3. Leave your credit card at home
Shop with cash. It will help you cut down on any unnecessary purchase that you are tempted to make. Also, psychologically, it hurts more to part with cash than to hand over your credit card to the person at the counter.
