What lies do you tell yourself when you want to buy something that you don’t really need? From the Frisky.com
1. The Lie: I’ll wear this so often that if I divide the total price by the number of times I wear it, it will basically cost me nothing.
The Truth: It still costs LOTS of money.
2. The Lie: I’ll have this forever.
The Truth: You can hold onto something for a lifetime, but after a few years of wearing it, the fabric will be worn and BO will have found a permanent home in the pits. Either that, or the dry-cleaner will lose it.
3. The Lie: I’ll never find anything else like it.
The Truth: Unless it’s vintage or couture, you can probably get something similar at a retailer up the block.
4. The Lie: I’ll fit into it eventually.
The Truth: If you can’t close the zipper now, you’ll probably never be able to. Sorry.
5. The Lie:I can afford it.
The Truth: You can afford it if you put it on your credit card.
