Impulse buying

How often do you find yourself in a shopping center and just randomly buy something as soon as you see it?

I do it from time to time, but it is only really with DVD's or sometimes games if I am bored.

I do this all the time with small purchases, say under $100. Anything more than that and I tend to have been wanting it a while, or do research on where sells the cheapest and best quality product i'm looking for.

Not really. I've started being sensible with money now because I end up regretting it so badly when I do that. When I lived with my parents I'd do it all the time.

I'm known to do it from time-to-time though I can't pinpoint any particular item.

With my own money, I'm not an impulsive buyer. I have to think many times before I buy something.
With my parent's money, I buy whatever comes across :lol:

I'm like the complete and total opposite!:lol:
...If our family gives us money for Christmas / Birthday's or whatever, I'll hold on to it but when it comes to our money, I'll spend it. lol, I guess it doesn't matter- money's money at the end of the day but I still find that kind of odd.:headscratch:

...My husband thinks the same thing... He has said to me over and over again, "Money's money, no matter where it comes from".:shifteyes:

I don't buy on impulse all that much. I'm hardly ever just randomly browsing shops, if I'm shopping then I've already got a good idea of what I need to get. I'll get it, and then go.

I'd probably do it with a t-shirt or something, but that's about the extent of my impulsivity :lol:

I'll do it for DVD's as well, I love to just sit down at my house and watch a movie when there's nothing on televison. A lot of times some of the older movies are really cheap so I can buy five great movies for around 30$
