Part of reducing impulse purchases, is to become conscious of the store’s strategy. If cute tape dispensers aren’t on your list today, why are you considering purchasing one? Stores highlight small items for under $15 to grab your attention. If you feel tempted consider:

  1. Would I still want it, if I had to wait until tomorrow to get it?
  2. Where will I put it when I get it home?
  3. Where will it be a year from now?
