2. Be patient with purchases. Research. Wait 24 hours. Then, buy. You'll make less impulse purchases.

Research

Patience is the companion of wisdom.  ~St. Augustine
It's so hard to wait when you receive money or a gift card. Immediately you think of 8 things you can't live without - even though you were just 30 seconds ago, happily.

Bubbe researched. Read up on different options. Originally really was leaning toward a toy purchase. But then, remembered. Our goal this year is to spend more time outside.

Research. Wait 24 hours. Then, buy.

You'll be happier with your purchases - and spend less money too!
