It feels wonderful to get a great deal, doesn’t it? I’m no stranger to impulse shopping. I used to work at a women’s clothing store. I had a closet full of clothes, but sometimes certain items would call my name. I tried my best to resist the temptation, but it was hard — especially when these items went on clearance. As an employee, I was one of the first people to know about the clearance prices. That meant finding the size and color I wanted was easier. Plus, I got my store discount on top of the clearance prices.
Even though I got a great deal on beautiful clothes, it wasn’t great. I already had enough clothes, and sometimes these new purchases would remain unworn in my closet for weeks. In addition, my purchases prevented me from using that money for other things — things that would have allowed me to live life to the fullest.
We are in the midst of the biggest shopping season of the year. While there are many sales, I encourage you to only pursue things that will allow you to live life to the fullest — things that you would still purchase at their regular price.
Thanks for reading. I hope you have a safe and healthy week.
