How to Reduce & Change Impulse Spending
Have you ever made a purchase and later regretted spending so much on the item or wondered why you even bought the item? Does this happen to you often? Unplanned spending to purchase things that you may or may not need is often referred to as “impulse spending.” Using credit or credit cards for impulse purchases can contribute to a cycle of ongoing financial difficulty.
There are many reasons why you may spend impulsively:
- Do you spend when you’re in a good mood?
- Do you spend when you’re feeling down or you’ve had a bad day?
- Do you buy gifts for friends or family?
- Do you like to buy things for your collection (e.g. movies, videogames or antiques)?
- Do you buy knowing that you’ll be getting the money to pay for it soon; your next raise,
- Money for your birthday or next commission cheque?
- Do you make a purchase because you feel that you deserve the item?
