The 10 second rule

Tightwad did a post on the 30 day rule... now here's even more self-discipline advice: the 10 second rule. Tightwad also calls this fancy cheese rule, because that's what she'll be putting back after a 10 second reflection of its value to her. If you can master this, you will be able to avoid impulse buys. Hurrah! How to: whenever you pick up an item in order to add it to your cart or zip to the checkout, stop for ten seconds and ask yourself if you need it, or if you want it. If you can’t find a good answer, put it back. Easy, right?
