If you take a look around you’ll notice that everything in your favorite store is set up to compel you to spend. Instead of simply giving in to every purchase temptation and chalking it up to poor will power, try to approach shopping with a more critical view. Ask yourself if you’re buying something because you want it, need it, and will use it…or if you’re buying it because some marketing executive is particularly clever.
