Making Impulse Purchases

When you buy before you think, you don't give yourself time to shop around for the best price. Take the time to compare prices online, read product reviews and look for coupons. 

Make it a policy to give yourself a cooling-off period in case you’re ever tempted to make an impulse purchase. Go home and sleep on the decision. More often than not, you’ll decide you don’t need the item after all.

I always compare because I've bought something before on impulse and found something later just like it for much cheaper.

I am always comparing. That is one of my favorite things about having a smart phone now.
