How often do you buy impulse items when you shop? Submitted By susues, CA
Almost always, I can't help myself.
Sometimes, when its a good buy or something I forgot I needed.
Rarely. I get what I need at the store and I'm out of there.
What's an impulse item?

Last week I went looking for jeans but came out with a super cute green skirt that was 55% off, the store was closing, and it was the last one in my size. I usually don't do impulse buys but I just couldn't resist.

an impulse item is the items which are usually near the checkout counter. they sit them there so you can be tempted to spend more money. However, in most cases these are also items which you need, and forgot you needed them.

I stock up on candy bars the day after a holiday. I keep them in my freezer .most stores-NOT target will have Halloween, Christmas, valentine candy 50% off. I also usually have coupons, too. rite-aid & walgreens ALWAYS have holiday godiva 50% off. especially, feb. 15.

Ever since I was young, I'd pick up things throughout the store that I was like "ooh! I really want that!" Then by the end of the shopping trip, I'd usually put back everything I'd picked up. Haha. It drives my friends crazy now 'cause I'll pick up something and say "Let me walk around with it for a little while." A couple laps around the store is all I need to convince me I don't actually need whatever it is :P

my dad saved 'for emergencies, un-expected costs'. he died at 57! my son-22- saves most of his money unless, he finds a good deal on autos. he has owned 10 cars/trucks/cycle. he's in 4th yr. college. owns a truck & a car-yes, they both run! this amazes my sister-in-law who's car is always breaking down. my older saves ,too. my other daughter is a spender. gets any money-wanted to go shopping. had over 60 pairs of shoes when she got married. now, she's trying to save more.

Companies have entire departments dedicated to figuring out how to get you to buy their products. Don't fall into it folks. Learn to see the signs!

If there's an incredible deal, always. You're going to be spending the money at some point. If I miss a very nice sale, I won't buy that item until I see it again. That being said, I wouldn't buy it until on sale anyway probabably.

You can't spend money you don't have! It's hard to explain to the mortgage company (or landlord) that you can't pay this month because there was a REALLY good deal on a TV (or whatever)!

I don't think anyone buys an impulse buy TV. That's nuts. Impulse buys are usually little treat-type items, not investment pieces. Like a magazine, mini flashlight, fleece throw, or a As Seen on TV kind of item. I think ToFlames was even talking about stuff you usually need, though, which I don't see as an impulse buy just because you buy it without having put it on your list. If you always use cinnamon swirl bread, and you see it's the last day it's half price, you should buy it even if you have 4 slices left at home and it wouldn't be on your list until the day after tomorrow. It's stupid to do otherwise, because you're going to be buying it anyway, so why buy it when it's double the price?

Hello

I'm sorry, but if it's something "I forgot I needed," it's NOT an impulse buy, it's something I forgot to put on the list. That's NOT AN IMPULSE BUY. I don't think a good deal on something I use is an impulse buy either. "Ooh, I simply must have that divine toilet paper that's on special!" Not an impulse buy. So this poll has poor options, if you ask me. I refuse to choose sometimes because of the ridiculous non-examples, even though sometimes is what's true for me.

Only at the grocey store. Problem with working at one Fri-Sun. Don't want to be in a grocery store on days off so I get what I see when I'm at work. I'm a sucker for the "New" to the store items :)

I'm a total cheapskate. XD I hate paying for the things I need, let alone impulse buys. It has to be very enticing for me to buy it.

Answering TODAY'S poll comments, I buy impulse items just about every single time I shop. I have learned that I am worth it. If I want it, I will get it. Why not? So what if your mother would say youre wasting money. It's your money!! And who says you can't have it? Who says an adult can't buy a jumprope if they want to. We are all still the exact same people we were when we were 7 or 18 or 26. Who says we have to act a certain way? Who says what an age acts like?
I just don't care anymore. I will do it if I want. If I want to buy 2 boxes of lucky charms and take out all the marshmallows out of 1 box and throw the meow mix away and double up on the other box, I will. It's not wasting. I got what I wanted. And no one is missing out. So, its not like I wasted anything at all.
PEOPLE... chill out... live a little. why not??? and who says you have to act like something??? close your eyes.. youre 16 again!! if you want to me!

I don't shop for clothes at the mall or department stores, only Goodwill. I took this poll to be more about grocery shopping so that's why I answered yes, always.
