A beautifully positioned marketing strategy, like the powerful word “sale,” can easily tempt you to go overboard with your budget.8 1

There are so many factors that can lead you to impulse shopping, and here are some useful strategies that can help you avoid it:8 2

  1. Stick with to what you came for to buy. Come up with a budget, come up with a list and religiously stick with it. The word “Sale” is the Venus flytrap and you are the fly.
  2. Use cash when you buy the things you jot down on your list. If you have a credit card, you might be tempted to spend just $10 or $20 extra for what you think is a great deal.
  3. Eat before you shop. Sometimes, when you are at the grocery store, your stomach or your taste pallet may encourage you to grab unnecessary snacks just to satisfy the craving.
  4. Don’t shop when you are upset, or if you have a heightened emotion. This can easily lead you to impulse shop.
  5. Look for another store that sells the types of products you need. Like if you need to buy meat, go to the meat shop, instead of the grocery. This way, you won’t see and get tempted by other unnecessary things not included in your budget list.8 3
