Here's a great tip to help you avoid those impulse buying when you are shopping on line or catalog shopping.
Website stores and shopping carts make it really easy to add items to your cart at the last minute and make that impulse purchase. I like to use the shopping list or wish list when I shop online. Take advantage of these tools provided by Amazon, WalMart and almost all of the online stores. If you see something you like or think you want, add it to your wish list. Let the item sit in your wish list for a few days. If you still want it or need it after a few days you can move it to your shopping card to make the purchase.
