Frugal Tip Friday - Curb the Impulse Buy

It's too, too easy to just pop into Target, Christmas Tree Shops, even the grocery store and come out with a bill $20, $30, or $40 more than I intended. Keeping the following things mind can really help curb impulse buying. 

New Purchase Criteria:

  • Do we really need it? (This one is the hardest to be truly honest about. At least for me.)
  • Can we make do with what we already have?
  • How often will we use it?
  • How much space will it take up?
  • How much care does it require?
  • Is it durable?
  • Does its design and quality meet my standards?
  • Is there more information available?
  • Is the price right? Could we find it second-hand?
  • How much difference will its addition to our home really make?
