Excerpts and Highlights:
Do not go to the mall with a shopaholic. You’ll most likely buy something on impulse when they do.
Have an honest conversation with yourself and answer this question, “What will happen if I don’t buy this?”
Always pay in cash when buying things that you don’t really need.
Create a “wants” list and note the date whenever you add an item there. Wait 30 days before buying the item. More often than not, the desire to purchase it will be gone and you can just take the item off the list after a month.
Allocate a budget for discretionary expenses. This allows you to have a guiltless shopping experience whenever you see something you want.
