New York, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2016
National Debt Relief recently share in an article published September 12, 2016 some financial tips for consumers to help them curb their impulsive buying behaviour. The article titled “
10 Simple Ways To Curb Impulsive Buying Habits” lists down some of the ways people can be proactive in changing their impulsive habit.
The article starts off by pointing out how challenging it can be to overcome an impulsive buying habit. Oftentimes, people do this automatically without thinking about every step. Since it is a bit difficult to change old habits, it is imperative for consumers to be consistent with their activities that will help them change
One of the activities the article shares which can help curb impulsive buying behavior on consumers is shopping or buying with a list. It is a smart move to always carry a list of what needs to be bought just like with the groceries. This helps consumers stick to what they need and avoid picking up unnecessary things along the way.
There are also some people who would try to use cash as a payment tool instead of swiping their credit card and charging the expense. This is because as they use cash, they are forced to stay within budget because they can only work with a definite amount. Once they use up their cash, they cannot just charge some of the items. This requires them to think of what they need to buy, know the price beforehand and carry that amount for payment.
The article shares one tip when the impulse to buy a specific item not on the list is so tempting - wait it out. It could be hard but consumers should try to walk away and see if the compulsion to buy would dissipate over time. They can go home and wait it out or just go to other area in the mall and see if they can stop thinking about the purchase.
