Curbing Impulse Shopping

Are you anxious to find some good after-Christmas bargains, but concerned you might bring home a lot of good buys that you don't really need? You know... the "going broke, saving money" syndrome.

Here's a suggestion to help curb your appetite for spending from Ball State University. A study there indicates that impulsive shopping, be it food or clothing, increases when you shop on an empty stomach.

So, the holiday budget experts recommend eating a good meal before you hit the mall, and if you think you might get hungry, take along a healthy snack like a piece of fruit or a granola bar so you won't over-indulge on food or bargains you might regret later.
