Ebay and Some Other Things

January 25th, 2007 at 10:14 pm

Today was pay day. I was able to save some of it, not all. I figure some is better than none. Went to lunch today with DD and Hubby. It was very, very good. Next stop was the new Walmart that openned on Monday. Spent $60.00 there. Not on things that I needed either. I get so overwhelmed by the low prices that I think that everything is a good deal so I don't think twice about putting it in the basket. Then after the register is finished ringing everything up, I get in the car and think what did I buy that cost so much? Oh well, I know that the things I bought today will be put to good use. It's just that I really didn't need any of it.

I have a few items up on E-bay that are ending in a few hours. No bidders as of yet. I hope that I at least sell something. Even if I don't it won't be to bad b/c I had posted the auctions last Thursday when they were running a sale so it only cost 0.20 to post.
Hubby is posting his auctions for the week as I write. He seems to do pretty well with his auctions but he also has been doing it for quite a while and has learned a few things along the way.

    One thing that helps me with impulse buying is to make a list of what I really need -- then I allow myself three things -- and only three things -- that are not on the list. Of course, don't make one of those things a plasma TV!

    That is a GREAT idea!!! I am going to try that. I always end up spending way way too much on stuff that I don't need.

    I always buy as well when I think that it is a good deal, then I return the items once I get to thinking about it...lol. Also I hope your items sells, good luck

    the best way to avoid impulse buying is to go with cash, exact amount you need. that way you know if you buy on impulse you'll need to leave something out.
