Do you buy unnecessary items?

Do you buy unnecessary items?

MamaDivine MamaDivine
Do you find yourself coming to EF to buy one thing and find a slew of other things you may not really NEED or be interested in, but since theres a deal/buy one get one free or some other awesome sale that you find yourself not being able to resist? lol. This happened to me last month, now that I have a few of those items, Im left wondering "Ok, now what do I do with them?" ...But but it was on sale!!

I always buy something if the sale interests me. At this point, I don't know that any of it is needed. LOL

I buy what I want to buy that I can afford. Some times things are not "needed" but sometimes things are just fun to have around and try. Better to "be prepared".

Probs only if it's free or something.

The only time I get extra stuff (other than what I have my eye on initially) is when it's free or super discounted.

Who knows. I get like 1-2 packages from EF a week. I'm sure not all of it is needed but it does feel like christmas each week I like doing reviews.. and I figure.. if there is a good sale and it looks nice, i'll get it and do a review on it. That doesn't mean I NEED it. Lol.

I try not to "force the fit." Yes, it may be on sale, but if I know it has no use, I won't do it.

Ehhh... I think I need it when I make the purchase. Does that count?

I haven't had the problem, but I have considered it. Since I tend to budget myself strictly I don't buy anything I don't intend to. However, I do set a little extra in my budget as "Browsing money". This means I give myself an extra amount to just shop with for spare things that might catch my attention.

I usually give myself a strict limit on what I can spend on here. I usually just browse through my wish lists until I find things within that limit that I want. If it's something I'm not so sure about wanting or needing, I just leave it alone for now.

Our toy collection is so large we technically don't need anything - but we still buy.

Usually I have long term lists of things that I want, but I find a way to justify the stuff I don't need.

if it's on sale yes, i've worked in an adult store for the past 5 years so you'd think i'd learn but nope...my stockpile is ridiculous.

I get what I came for and go usually, but sometimes the deal is just too good to pass up and I'd been wanting it for so long and and and....

I consider everything I buy on EF a want, and not a need. But do I buy something spontaneously to get a good deal? Yah, of course.

There always seems to be something I want, so if something does go on sale, I'll check it out and determine how bad I really want it. This is where I get weak.

I do not buy anything for the heck of it. I order things that I really want and that's it. I don't let the sales get to me. I know I have a slew of bath and body works body lotions so I haven't bought any of the Dona body butters yet because I know i need to use all of those first. Yes, I would like to try some new things, but it's just not practical.
