Do you bring something home every time you pass by a shop? Do you buy the children a treat evey time you venture out?
Or are you happy to look and not buy? Are you teaching your children that life can be fulfilling without owning everything their heart desires?
You can probably see my bias from a mile away. I know how tempting it can be to shop till you drop, but remember, for every item you buy, you’ll have to find a place for it in your home. And it’ll need dusting or washing.
Here’s a suggestion… for one week try changing your default setting to “not buy” when you go out. Let me know how it goes. 🙂
