Don’t: Be an impulsive shopper

If you are the type of person who wanders around the mall and buys things at random, this is a habit you have to break immediately. Shopping is not a good hobby to have. You are only throwing money away when you buy things on impulse. Impulse buys can be as small as a package of gum at the checkout stand or as large as deciding you really need a new laptop because you saw one on sale.

Impulse buys are usually things you don’t really need. If you really needed it, you would have made the trip especially for that item. If you think you need something, take the time to research cost and your budget and wait a couple of weeks before making the purchase to see if you still need and want it.
