Money Saving Tips: Control Your Impulses

April 5, 2012 3 Comments | Disclosure


Are you looking for some simple ideas to save money? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

When you want to make a big purchase, don’t just buy.

Impulse shopping is driven by emotions and instant gratification, so if you wait a few days for that to wear off, you’ll make more objective purchases!

Here are 5 simple ways you can avoid the impulsive trap:

1. Give yourself a rule to wait at least 24 hours before you make the decision to buy.

2. Ask yourself, “Do I NEED this?”

3. Avoid the stores if you don’t have money

4. Shop with a clear list

5. Don’t give up what you want most (money in your account or something more important you’re saving for) for what you want now (an item you won’t likely use)
