When shopping and you see something you MUST have put it on your list and then wait for one week before purchasing. Odds are you will find you no longer want or need that item.

I take your idea a step further.

When I see something in a store "I MUST have" like you I write it down on a list. Items that have risen to the top of list I search local stores & the web for the lowest price. Save $$$. Then buy it. Once purchased the next item is at the top of the list & the cycle continues.

The items that make it to the top and is no longer desired is dropped.

    When I see something I really want I try it on and if I like it, I imagine it in the next size smaller and make myself a deal that when I get down a size and if it's on sale in the smaller size... I will get it!
