Top Tips For Staying Decluttered In The Sales

Spending in the sales, and at Christmas –  It’s not a good deal, if you don’t need it.
And for those, that want to declutter, or stay decluttered, our spending habits have an impact.

Nowadays, it is very easy to buy something on the spur of the moment. So, if you want to reduce your buying this weekend, or indeed this season.

To save you money, space, and perhaps guilt, for then not using it/them, or spending too much on others.
Here are a few tips, for when you catch yourself browsing online. Or, you find yourself holding something in your hand, in a shop, or in the queue at the till.
Stop for a moment, and ask yourself:
1. If I didn’t need it yesterday, what has truly changed today?
Notice the word need vs want.
2. What impact does my buying this have?
Whichever way you interpret this. Whether it’s on your emotions, the environment, the space in your home, your bank balance, or something else.
3. If it’s in a sale, would you buy this at full price? Or, would you buy it at twice the price?
If the answer is no. It is usually a sign that it is an impulse purchase. It is possibly not exactly what you want, maybe only almost, or didn’t quite fit or look right. Or you’ve got caught up in the excitement/alleviating boredom/fomo/swept-up, in the moment of buying. Even allowing for finances.
Final thoughts:
If you can wait 48 hours before committing to a purchase great.
Otherwise, if in town, you might be able to ask the store to hold it for an hour or so. If you can’t be motivated to walk back to get it at the end, was it worth it to start?
It’s not a good deal if you didn’t need it.
If you did need it, and wanted it. And, you managed to plan and get it within your budget, or for less. Fantastic.
Let me know if this saved you any money!
