These are so great, but I think the best is the first one. I use that trick with my high heel addiction, but I take it to at least waiting until the next day (sleep on it) or up to three days. If I am still thinking about it just as enthusiastically, I will find a deal to soften the blow. Most of the time I find that I purposefully overlook negatives like the style or fit, durability, etc. and save my money for something I do need.

Great Tips - I really agree with the Crock-Pot idea - a lot of times my only energy of the day is in the morning - if I go ahead and plan ahead and can get everything in the crock-pot and cooking first thing in the morning then I have a nice home-cooked meal for the family at dinner time - when I am normally too pooped to cook! :)

Also never go grocery shopping with an empty stomach. You tend to splurge and end up buying more than necessary. I learned if the hard way. Great article!

Also: use coupons! But to get the most out of them, you'll want to stockpile some coupons for a couple of weeks from the Sunday papers first, then only use them when they're on sale.

#3 is not just for Christmas, but for any holiday... If you have your heart set on a decor item but can't justify spending that much for it, check out its price shortly after the holiday, or a few weeks later. This is how I got the majority of my Christmas decorations, including a $30 advent calendar I later found for $5.
Conversely, shop extra EARLY for things, I paid 5cents an egg for this year's Easter Eggs in late January, and they are currently up to 12cents at the same store!
