Do you plan on the things that you buy or are you easily lured to buy things when you are attracted to it?

I am a very careful buyer. I usually have something in mind when I go to the store. I rarely buy anything on impulse. If I do, it's usually because I got a gift card or something.

that's great for you darlene. i also do plan specially when buying expensive items. however, there is also a tendency of not buying at all even if i planned it before.

I am a impulsive buyer no doubtly,which makes me can not bargin with sellers vrry well.Because at seeing something that I want to buy,I will become so worried to afraid of it will be bought by others.so I will buy it at once though its price is hign than its worth.

I am not, I plan on things that I buy specially expensive ones. Even the grocery, I make a list of it to avoid buying things that we really don't need.If I do buy on impulse that's too rare and I only buy items which I think for me is cheap.I am proud to say that I am a careful buyer,on which I am trying to influence my husband coz he tend to buy on impulse most of the time.

that's so nice. of course it would really help if both of you control on your expenses. the discipline should always be there.

as they say, acceptance of the fact would be a good beginning for any change.

I ushally make a whole list, of specific things I want to buy, according to breakfast, lunch and dinner meals for the week. But for some reason, even after I get all the stuff on my list, the candy isle ALWAYS gets me. I definitally impulse buy when im hungry also. I also get a lot of things that smell good!

I don't buy many things although there are things that I would like. I can usually control myself to not buy something unless I really need it. So, I would say I'm not an implusive buyer.

Some things that I buy , I get on impulse but most of the time I consider what I am going to buy unless I come across something on sale . I love sales and will buy more when I see a sale as I figure it will save me money in the long run when I have to buy something for someone , then I will already have something if I don't have the extra money to buy them something at that time .

I am not an impulse buyer at all. If I am to buy something besides food, gas, clothes I will think it through and do some reasearch on prizes and quality before I buy. I like the things i do buy to be good things that i can enjoy for a long time

yes, we need to plan what are the things that we need to buy in order for us to save our money,because if we will buy and buy we will not be able to save our money for the other things that we are needed.

I am usually not a impulsive buyer. I plan what I am gonna but and go and buy it. But every once in a while I come across something that I have wanted for a while and I finally have the perfect one. And I will definitely buy it.

I am absolutely not an impulsive buyer unless we are going by Starbuck's. Then I like to go inside and pick up a drink to take home. That drink will last me up to three days. It is still fresh on the third day. Otherwise, no, I am not. I look for bargains.

I guess i'm an impulsive buyer... But before I go shopping- I do make sure I have a list with me of all the things I need to buy. Unfortunately after long walks along the mall, and looking at this and that- I fail... lol Especially when there's a sale! That's why as much as possible, when I go out to shop. I make sure I have some extra bucks to bring along incase I come across some uneccessary items that is not on my list. But this doesn't really happen a lot. It just happens when I do have some extra bucks to bring along. But if my money is just enough for what i'm supposed to buy then I don't sweat it. =)

Most of the time I have planned out what I am going to buy. I usually stick to it, but now and then I have bought on the spur of the moment. It mostly depends on how much $$ I have on hand :) I always shop when there are sales.

I have to admit that I am... whenever I go to a store, even if I have a distinct idea of what I want, I will get tempted to buy even the smallest thing when I get to the register or see something that I suddenly feel like I want. It doesn't matter where I am, from the supermarket or an electronics place, because if I see something that I might even think that I want, then I might think about it mightily. Shoot... I buy candy bars at the register at grocery stores almost everytime I go to one.
