If you are constantly finding yourself adding items to your home with impulse purchases, then this tip is for you!
When we go shopping we often get swept away with the occasion – looking at items we don’t really need, but wanting them, and often buying them
Items that seem like a great idea at the time – but aren’t really used or needed at all.
Items that take up space in your home, add to your clutter, and end up making you feel bad for having wasted money and effort buying them.
You may want to start thinking about what I like to call the 2 week buying rule.
The 2 week buying rule
Its simple really.
If you are out shopping, and see something that’s not what you were looking for (not on your list), then make a note of it (take a photo on your phone, or write down the details so you don’t forget it).
Then walk away from it and wait 2 weeks.
Often after 2 weeks you will have forgotten about it, decided that you really don’t need it, or you may have looked online and found an alternative that would work better or is cheaper.
If you do still want it after 2 weeks then get it!
TIP – Make sure you have a space to put it – as you don’t want to add clutter to your home!
