Jareth - Riding crop

(no subject)

What are everyones' best tips to resist buying?

I'm normally pretty good with not buying, especially compared to everyone around me, but I'm not immune to the shinies, either. And as the bills rise, it's really necessary that I not get distracted by shiny things and then bummed out because I cannot have them. I still don't even have all of my furniture yet.

So, ideas, philosophies? I usually try to think about how much I really need the item and if I'll ever even use it much. Or I'll think about how much clutter more stuff would make -- I hate being weighed down by junk and clutter.
