Impulse buys, I try to avoid them by asking the timeless question, “Is this a need, or a want?” The problem I encounter is that sometimes the answer is that it is a “must have!!!” Take for example my trip shopping this morning. I ducked out, kid free, to get a few essentials, and came across the most beautiful panini pan. It came with a steep price tag for a simple impulse buy, so I made the responsible decision not to throw it in the cart. I also heard my husbands probable reaction in my mind…”Really, Kelly? We totally needed a panini pan. How did we ever live this long without one??” ( insert as much sarcasm as humanly possible) ” Just one more thing to sell at a future garage sale…blah, blah, blah!!”
So, now that I have left the store, panini pan-less, I cannot stop thinking about it. Dare I go back and get it???
