“I saw your advice in PARADE recently about tempering the impulse to purchase non-necessities. A habit I developed in college was, when I felt the urge to buy some item that caught my eye, to wait two weeks. If I wanted it then, I told myself, I would buy it. Usually, I didn’t even remember it after two weeks. Even though my financial situation is much changed from those days, I still maintain this habit and consider it really useful.” — Vince DeHart

This is so simple and so smart and so important, I have only one thing to add: it does not apply to books.
