Laura’s Cheap Trick #29

Ask Yourself If It Is Really Necessary.

Before you buy anything that is not a necessity…take a moment and ask out-loud, “Do I really NEED this?  Or am I just buying it to fill a void, I’m hungry because I went shopping on an empty stomach etc…”  My husband and I enjoy shopping.  There is no doubt it fills voids on those down PMS weeks for him I think it’s a shared PMS…But our house could not hold the stuff and our wallets could not pay for the things we would love to own…so this question has saved us many times.
