You Must Avoid Overspending When Shopping, especially when things are tight for you, especially when you have maxed out all your credit cards, especially when you have no job, especially when you are getting on your feet, and especially when you have goals that you need to accomplish. Because the greatest enemy is the in-ner-me, and he or she lives inside your head 24 hours a day, and is quite easily influenced by Ads, Fads, Envy, Lust, Belonging, Trend Setting... And so you always have to be vigilant about that most powerful adversary of yours and their every move, since there is no running away from him or her. And when it comes to Shopping, the in-ner-me, will always be encouraging you to get it today and worry about it later.
And so here are 3 ways to avoid overshopping and overspending every time:
Go In - Get What You Came For - Get Out
You already know what you need for your hygiene, for your stomach, for your well being. Again, Need - not wants. So write it down on a piece of paper beforehand and attach the price next to it, and then you will already have worked it out on your budget and on the monies you now have available for just what you need. Then when you go into that store, you just look up that list, get what you need and can easily afford, and then get out.
Avoid Accessories - Upgrades - Extra Warranties
When you are shopping Online or at a Brick N Mortar, all the sales people have been ordered to up-sales at your expense and financial downfalls, all to their benefit of a bonus of commission and to the benefit of the store in sales volume. So of course they will constantly keep on offering you all the extras for whatever you are buying, and then hoping that you will be the 95% who do not end up using them. Kind of like that Mail-in Rebate offer that seems so profitable, and yet the stores know that only 20% of the people end up taking all the steps to send in the coupons, the receipts, the bar codes etc... So avoid all the silly accessories, upgrades, extra warranties and other tricks, just do your comparison shopping Online before hands or through the ads, and then only get just what you Need and not want.
3rd. Way To Avoid Overspending When Shopping: Stop Window Shopping And Do Fantasized Shopping.
In every area of life and in every single thing we end up doing, there is always the fantasy in the mind - in the eyes - in the ears first. And then come all the self destructive actions that are bad for you, and it doesn't matter if it is Sex, Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking, Shopping, Fast Foods and Crazy Lifestyles... All begin in the mind, in the eyes, in the ears, in the smell, in the taste. So you have to be the wiser Beloved, you have to be the conqueror and the master of your life by always being in control, and not allow the subliminal messages or the deceptive suggestions to get to you, such as when you window shop, when you fantasize what that outfit that you can't afford will look like, when you imagine how others will treat you just because you have something. So Stop It. Just Get What You Need And Be Happy. Then you will not have to lose sleep, or have the bill collectors running after you, or become a hoarder, or going to A. A. meetings just because you can't get your shopping addiction under control. Your Shopping Advocate, James Dazouloute
