  1. Impulse buying is really, really hard. I always keep my receipts, though, so if I do make an impulse buy – return home – and regret it I can take it back. I’m never afraid to return something! 🙂

    • Yes, impulse buying can be a tough one Katie I agree. Our family actually went to Target the other day and didn’t buy a single thing. It was tough! Definitely keep receipts and know a store’s return policy. Or better yet avoid the store all together! Lol Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thanks for reading Inspiring Kitchen. I agree it may not be for everyone. This is based on the book The Millionaire Next Door on the habits of the average millionaire the authors interviewed over a period of 2 decades. Thanks for the perspective!

  2. Impulse buys were a huge issue with me in the past. Now that I have two toddler boys keeping me busy I don’t have time to linger around shops for extra spending. As well I have become so intrigued by those in the world who get by in life by having so much less than we do and seem so happy.

  3. This is so true. You’re spot on once again, I especially like the replacing what is not broken and the impulse buying, these are some of the things we can’t avoid doing once we get a hold of our paychecks.

  4. I am going to have to get this book for my hubby and have him read it because he is the one that takes charge of our “future” finances. I am in charge of our “right now” finances, like paying monthly bills. Thanks for the share! <3 Christine

  5. my parents have friends who are millionaires and they drive an old mini van. They’re not the type of people who waste money or show it off.

  6. This does sound like a great book indeed. I do try to fix things that are broken before buying new things. Impulse buying is something I have been trying not to do for sure. Thanks for sharing.
