Is it possible to buy an item without even thinking about it? You buy an item without thinking about the consequences.
Most people impulse buy, whether it’s a big purchase like a car or a small one like a box of chocolate. Retailers market themselves online and design their stores with impulse buying in mind and strategically place common impulse-purchased products.
A small impulse purchase, such as a candy bar, can be harmless. However, impulse spending on an even larger scale can cause ineffective budgeting, loss savings and poor financial planning. This is money that you can instead use to pay your utility bills or save for college.
