Shopping Pitfalls You Should Watch Out

Shopping is exciting and a happy experience but spending is the exact opposite. Unfortunately, you cannot shop if you do not have money and you cannot be satisfied until you lose all your money. No matter what you see it, shopping can lead to serious problems in the near future.


If you are vulnerable to shopping, it is time that you learn the pitfalls and eventually learn how to avoid it. Whether you are fond of online or actual shopping, you have to consider the following pitfalls so you will know in the future if you are treading on a destructive road:

  • Buying a thing that “almost” fits: When you buy a thing, do not consider those that “almost fits”. You have to think of your “right-now” body instead of forcing it to fit.
  • Buying a thing you already have: If you have that kind of thing, there is no need to buy another one. The best thing to do is take an inventory before shopping so you will not waste money on duplicating things.


  • Buying a thing because it is on sale: Here in Singapore, sales are everywhere. It is truly tempting but you should not be lured into that trap.
  • Buying a thing for single use: When you buy something, you have to be practical about it. Do not think that you will only use it for a single time. You have to make sure that you can use it multiple times.
  • Buying a thing to make yourself better: People feel sad sometimes and there are different ways to cope up but shopping should not be an option. Yes it will give you happiness and even distract you but it can be a source of regret at the end of the day.

There are other pitfalls but so far, these are the most common. Shopping malls are common here in Singapore but you can do something about it.
