How could your life and business be different if you made one small change? Start small. We all impulse buy...we all have a love hate relationship with Target! What if there was a small change that you could implement that would allow you to take control over impulse buying? Why don't we take a look at the possible results first.
Taking control over your finances
Proper management of your budget
Accurate planing for future goals
Missing any of these in your life? Set a dollar amount based on your budget that represents 10% of your entertainment/fun money. This becomes your spending threshold. If you are wanting to make a purchase above that amount, wait 3-4 days before spending your hard earned money. Do research. Can you find it at a lower cost? Does it fit into your budget? Do you REALLY want it? Most of the time we forget about that item within 5 minutes of walking away. After the "cooling off" period if you choose to purchase the item you can do so knowing that you are getting the best quality at the best price. What a great feeling!
For my Hawaii Ohana, we know the struggles of shopping on Big Island! Our solution is to purchase the item before it disappears forever but don't open or use it for the same amount of time. Keep your receipt and return it if you decide you don't need it.
