Most of you had probably heard one of the golden rules of smart shopping: do not buy on impulse.True, spending time in shopping centers wondering around shops without having a genuine idea of what to buy and where to do it can be fun sometimes, and there certainly is a soothing effect in buying stuff you do not really need when you feel lonely, disappointed, bored or nervous.
