When the going gets tough, the tough goes shopping!
I confessed to being a shopaholic, I have learned my lesson and now I know better. Admittedly, the primary purpose of shopping for me was to take away my mind from problems and improve my current mood. But it was all short-lived! What’s worse, the so-called “comfort buys” or the items I purchased during that spur of the moment shopping, are normally things that I do not really need. It maybe what I want but at that moment it’s not really part of what we need.
I’m so glad I am over that phase, when you have a family especially kids, you need to become skilled at living within the budget and come to terms with the fact that there are more important things to prioritize.
On the other hand, I still go to the malls but now I find pleasure in window shopping. I have discovered that I have the discipline to think twice (or even sleep it over) before buying something, especially the big ticket items. Isn’t it nice to do window shopping and have those very handy wireless laser scanners, such as the ls4278. This way you know exactly what the price is even without asking for assistance. How convenient can that be?
