Impulse Buyer? Create a list!
One of my clients graduated from college recently. She has a great idea about how to plan for shopping trips for toiletries that will also help curb impulse purchases. First, she will make an electronic list of everything she buys on a regular basis like toothpaste. She’ll include the brand and specific product name she typically purchases. Then she will print the list when she goes shopping and highlight the items she plans to buy. This strategy will help her remember what she needs and help resist the urge to make impulse purchases while at the store. How can you apply this strategy to your shopping?
