Did you know the “urge to splurge” is a brain chemistry response and can last from 7 – 12 MINUTES? No wonder it can be a difficult mindset to break! In this Part 2 episode, Kathi and spending coach Paige Pritchard talk about brain chemistry and the way it affects our behavior. Today they finish discussing Paige’s five tools to managing your impulsive shopping. The conversation is fascinating. Here are just a few of the many highlights:
- How to use an Urge Jar to change your behavior (and maybe save enough for a trip to Disneyland).
- Making a list of what you want to buy is actually a healthy choice.
- There is a big difference between an intentional buy and an impulse buy.
