Examining why we shop online for things we don’t need, with some practical solutions to stop the mindless spending.
People go shopping for a lot of reasons…they are bored, they believed some wacky advertising, or, often, they really do need something. I am talking here specifically about mindless shopping for wants.
I can be very, very bad about constantly getting myself my wants. I convince myself that buying this one more thing would complete my (house, garden, wardrobe, etc.) and then I won’t need to buy anything else. In a way, I think to myself, I will be saving money buying X, because it is the last X I’ll ever need.
