When the Boxing Day sales start, or any sale really I always have that urge to shop even when I don’t really need anything. This year I was quite proud of myself because when we went rummaging through the sales initially this year I gave my bank cards to Alfie to look after.
I found this to be a really good psycholigical tactic as I knew that I had no means to buy anything and wasn’t really interested on looking at any clothes for myself. It was almost as if my brain had disconnected itself from my bank cards!
Since that very proud moment I have had my bank cards in my possession andit has all gone miserably wrong. I have accumulated quite a small haul of goods, which I love don’t get me wrong but I don’t really need them.

Proof that my tactic might actually work?
I must give my huge apologies for the shoddy camera work. I took the images with my camera phone and early morning light mixed with artificial light makes for rubbish conditions to take photographs.
Other than avoiding the shops completely, do you have any tactics to stop you spending too much when o0ut cothes shopping?
Are you prone to buying things that you don’t really need just because it’s on sale?
