The next time you get the urge to purchase - before you add to the clutter - ask yourself these questions first:
Is this truly an item I’ve been looking for?
Do I really need it, or just want it because I saw it/it was on sale?
Can I afford it/is it in my budget?
Will I use this item on a regular basis?
Do I have something at home that serves the same purpose?
Am I willing to donate something similar if I buy this?
Do I have a home for it that is easy to access?
Can I live without it?
Am I willing to come back for it later after I think about it?
If I had to pay cash and it was non-returnable, would I buy it?
What’s the worst thing that can happen if I don’t buy it?
Is there something else I’d rather save my money for?
