How many times do we just buy things on an impulse?
Its a feeling, we gotta have it
A things to buy list combats this impulse to buy right now
Instead of buying the item, put it on the list – even hyperlink whatever it is to the list
And with that one step, we often forget about us needing to buy that item we wanted
Then that gives us some time to process, become logical instead of emotional
Do i really need this?
More often then not the answer is “no, i just wanted it”
But we keep it on the list for when we do need it (which doesnt come around that often)
