We all buy stuff from time to time that only satisfies us for a short time. I was able to locate a few expenses that fall under that category.
Unfortunately, there are a few products I've wanted to buy for a long time. Since I have a discount code for that shop (which I always move to the trash bin and restore again) I can’t stop thinking of those products. Why I do not want to buy them:
- Makes me happy only for short time
- Too expensive for what you get
- The perception of them will change from “fun” to “work” (aka I often think “damn, I still have to read X books, to watch X movies" and so on)
How can I convince myself to not buy those products? Deleting the discount code will only result in me maybe buying it for the full price. Should I try to seek some middle ground by not buying everything? If yes, how?
I’m sorry for this question sounding weird or maybe me sounding weak, but I don’t want to buy that stuff, and still it bugs me for nearly a month. Any advice would be welcome.
This is rather a question on how to avoid buying it, not about the budget. I would have the required amount to buy that stuff.
