Stay away from instant gratification is one of the most important rules to save money, and waiting 30 days to decide on a purchase is a great way to implement that rule.
After a month(30 day) has passed, you’ll find that the craving to buy has passed as well, and you have saved money simply by waiting.
30-day method to control impulse spending. check out below and learn, how it works:
Step 1: Whenever you feel the urge to shop — whether it’s for new shoes, dress, a new TV, or a new phone! force yourself to stop. If you’re already in the store. Leave the store.
Step 2: When you come home, make a note and write down the name of the item, price and store where you found it and also the date.
Step 3: Now post this note someplace apparent: a calendar or the fridge. (I use a calendar on the wall)
Step 4: Next 30 days, think whether you really need the item, but don’t buy it.
Step 5: At the end of 30 days, if the urge is still there then consider buying it.
It’s surprisingly effective. The 30-day rule works really well cause you aren’t denying yourself but only delaying gratification.
Another advantage: it gives you a chance to research the item, you might will get in less price.
Start using the 30-day rule after 2 month you don’t always remember to follow it, Sometimes urge to spend is gone by the time get home.
