Impulse purchases are notorious for causing a major strain on personal household finances. Be it that larger-than-life flat screen, the latest sports car or the cabin in the woods, these buys are extraordinarily difficult to avert because they are often complex and emotionally charged. When confronted with these types of spending decisions it’s important to remember that there is safety in a multitude of counsel. Find yourself an accountability partner. Maybe a spouse, friend, or financial advisor that can help talk you off the ledge and encourage you toward achieving your savings goals.
