How to Fight the Urge to Shop Compulsively

  • Always shop with a list, and buy only what's on the list.

  • Shop alone. Shopping with a friend can make it easier to spend big.

  • If you decide to buy an expensive item, wait 24 hours.

  • If shopping provides a main source of enjoyment, cut back on the cost of the things you buy.

  • Put your credit cards in a locked box, and put that box in another box. Then put the boxes in the back of a closet. That way, you have to make at least three conscious decisions to get your hands on the credit cards.
