10 Ways to Change your Shopping Habits

Changing your shopping habits can be really difficult. We often shop for fun, as a reward, to de-stress, or to spend time with friends or family but bad shopping habits typically result in impulse purchases, unworn clothes, a cluttered closet, and spending time and money on things you don’t love.

Here’s 10 tips to stop shopping or change the way you shop:
  1. Remember why you want to change your shopping habits
  2. Replace shopping with other activities (here’s some ideas)
  3. Separate needs vs wants
  4. Take time to think about an item before buying it
  5. Try a shopping challenge – no shopping, secondhand only, no fast fashion, etc. for 3 months, 6 months, or even a year!
  6. Use the “one in one out” rule to shop less
  7. Unsubscribe from newsletters and unfollow brands who share lots of sales and promotions
  8. Have a strict budget
  9. Use a shopping list and stick to it
  10. Take the money you would have spent and put it in savings for your dream vacation, an investment garment, or anything you really want to save for
