Do you watch advertisements and decide what you will buy? Like I should try that? I do it mostly in case of chocolates or Lays snacks. When they show some new chocolate I just can't help trying it out. Also I check for offers and discounts in newspapers when I plan to buy clothes.

@ragikutty but when it comes to food, the flyers they give out sometimes help because you see what's on offer and start to feel like eating there when you get the chance.

We don't watch much tv and we don't buy the newspaper or watch the news so unless we discover it on our own or through others no we are not influenced or aware.

It's good to stay away from temptation... You can make right choices then
