It happens that a person goes to the store for some trifle, and returns home with several packages. He didn't seem to be planning on making that many purchases. The fact is that people sometimes buy some categories of goods quite spontaneously.
If you go to the grocery store hungry, there is a good chance that you will buy a lot of excess. This is especially true of large supermarkets, where you walk with a large empty trolley on wheels. Despite the list of products you need compiled in advance, you run the risk of purchasing various delicacies, sweets that you will not eat later, semi-finished products, sausages, canned food and juices. Keep in mind that the length of your checkout can be directly proportional to how hungry you feel. If you want to save your budget from unnecessary spending, head to the store after eating in a relaxed, contented state.
Be alert during the sales season. There is a chance that while strolling through the mall, staring at the windows, you will not resist the temptation to buy extra clothes. The illusion that you are saving makes spontaneous purchases even more likely. The feeling of lack of something, some kind of dissatisfaction adds fuel to the fire. Some people deal with stress through shopping. Sometimes this therapy is effective. But the fact remains: wardrobe items can be acquired completely spontaneously.
In large shopping centers, sometimes several stores are located right in the aisles, in the halls. The consultants, with cute smiles, ask the mall visitors to stop by their window for a minute and test their product or listen to a short presentation. The products that are presented in this way can be very different. With such persistence of sellers, there is a great risk of making an unexpected purchase. Under the influence of a well-developed speech of a consultant, a person begins to think that this product is absolutely necessary for him, and takes out a wallet. Of course, this technique does not work for everyone. Some people don't even stop in front of such display cases. But there is still a chance to buy something while passing by.
Separately, it should be said about children's goods and toys. Parents who go shopping with their kids are not immune to spontaneous shopping. After all, boys and girls, having seen some kind of bright wrapper, having recognized a brand from a cartoon, may very persistently ask to buy something. It is not always possible to persuade the child to wait with the purchase. And if the product is rather small, some moms and dads prefer to immediately purchase it and hand it over to their child. This is how a completely unplanned purchase of sweets, toys and other children's goods is carried out.
