Impulse buy

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Have you ever seen something totally silly but inexpensive and bought it knowing you would never use it? I have a bad habit of that and I managed to stop myself today at the supermarket checkout. The item was a cute little tinkerbell pencil. I was so close to buying it but thought I will never ever use this pencil. It was pretty though.

I would have bought it but then again I'm a huge Tinkerbell fan and collect any trinket of her. The other day I was at Big Lots and came across a pack of 4 Tink pens for a buck! Somehow they appeared on my basket.

Just wait until you have to move some day like I recently did and you discover all the things that you bought on impulse and decide you really don't want to pack them and move them! Yes, I know a tinkerbell pencil will not take much in the packing department but when you are an impulse buyer like me, these things can really add up and until you have to move, you will have no idea of what you are doing!

Guilty! I collect MacFarlane rock & roll action figures, and bought Jon Bon Jovi off the clearance table for 5 bucks. I went in looking for an elusive Jimi Hendrix
figure with the burning Stratocaster and the Marshall Stack. After we get moved I guess if I cannot find one in Austin, I will ebay one. I wanted the set of Kiss figures, but not as much as the Hendrix. Then I want the Beatles set. I am going to have to get bigger bookcases. They are rumors of a Stevie Ray Vaughn one coming out. That will be another one I will have to have. It's a good thing I worked for a moving company for 7 years and know how to pack and load, I have so many dust catchers that I would not dream of parting with.

I'm awful for impulse buying...Guilty as charged!

I actually cleared out my whole wardrobe the other day, and found things that I bought years ago, and I decided now was the time to get rid of them..

I'm occasionally tempted by impulse buys, but can usually control the urge - except around craft supplies. This is how I have such a large collection of stuff, including beads. $3 here, $30 there - it adds up. If I see a really good price on a cd for a band I like, I usually can't pass that by either. For example, I saw Heart's Dreamboat Annie for $7 a couple of weeks ago while walking through an aisle - I had to turn around and get it.

I can control most other buys, though. As I've watched my dad buy some pretty stupid, and expensive, stuff on impulse.

YES !!!! I'm glad I'm not alone in my ridiculous purchases. The other day I was in the "Dollar Tree", and I saw this 10 inch long, fully functional stainless steel shopping cart. It was only 4.99 and I had to have it. The clerk asked me what I was going to do with it, and I told her that I had no idea...but I had to have it. It is currently sitting on my counter holding a can of coffee in the basket part, and the coffee filters are sitting in the seat...LOL.

Peace, Love and Tie Dye ,
Rob and Sport
