  1. Tell me, is this an example of intentional shopping or am I trying to justify an unplanned purchase? For three months I’ve eyed a pair of brown Italian wool slacks, pricy and gorgeous – a “want” rather than a “need.” Yesterday one pair remained and that pair was in my size. Not much knockdown in price. An extravagance. I scooped up the slacks. We’ve one month left to winter and then little need for 100% wool anything. And while, yes, these are a conservative, classic style, presumably worn each winter until I outgrow or get sick of them, I still spent money that could have gone to food, savings, or baby books. While I’m not having buyers remorse, I wonder if I should.

Sure you could buy cheaper pants but how many of those would you go through in the time those nice ones will last you? Plus you have to add in the the joy factor. If it really matters to you that matters. Impulse purchasing is more like late night Amazon splurges or Target runs where you buy a bunch of stuff you don’t need just because you are in the mood for something new.
