[1945900] Issue 1 – Over Budget

One of the biggest risks of Christmas impulse shopping is to exceed your budget. Every time you shop, you may find yourself picking up a small gift. While these gifts may cost less than £ 10 over a period of time, these small items will start to add up, and you will be ahead of your budget before you know. To overcome this problem, make sure you write down the gift you bought, who it is, and how much you spend. This will ensure that you understand the total cost of all these small gifts.


Question 2 – Buy Boring Gifts

Have you ever been to a store and bought some Cute gifts, only when you let them go home when they realize they are silly, a waste of money This is one of the problems of impulse shopping. What happens when this happens? You can return the gift, buy something more appropriate, otherwise you can give it to your friend. If you decide to return, then depending on the degree of Christmas, you may not be able to find the replacement. You have no choice but to impulse to buy you a boring gift.

Question 3 – forget that you have bought

This is the trap I have been caught in. Every time I go shopping, I will buy a small gift for people and keep it hidden in the home, and then I completely forget them. When I came to my Christmas present, I found that I bought too many things and spent too much money. Still worse, I forgot them until after Christmas! To overcome this problem, you need to keep the list. Write down every gift you buy so that you can know exactly where Christmas is.

When impulsive shopping is a good idea

Of course sometimes impulsive shopping can benefit it. If you are shopping out, you will see the perfect gift of your friend or relative, you can immediately put it on, that is impulsive shopping. I'm not saying you should not do it because sometimes the best gift is so bought. What you need to do is add it to your list so that you forget or exceed the Christmas budget.
