    My rule of thumb is Will i regret not buying this tomorrow or Will i think "why did i do that" Invariably its the latter and i save my money.
    Its not easy, but after a while you get the same buzz when you resist as you used to when you bought something. Honest
    Alternatively come on here and see what other people think.That usually works too.

    Don't fall for all the speil and hype because that's exactly what it is.

    Good.luck

    I cant really relate to why you order but would like to make a suggestion.

    The next time you get the urge to buy during your danger times why not try this forum, there are people live at all times of the day and night and a quick virtual chat might take away the urge. Im not saying log on and say "help im thinking of buying something" but just something general perhaps in the drop or on the main forum if appropriate.

    Hope this might help a bit

    Think of less as hijacking and more as great minds think alike.

    Yorko, I wondered the same, I didnt click it had been moved for awhile. I guess because I made mention of the laser product which I bought was from Ideal but my point/thread was more general and mainly I shop with qvc so thought it might be better there.

    What you could give some thought is selling a few of your purchases that you havent used on ebay , then fund your future buying from the proceeds , as daft as it sounds you could actually get more benefit from making money than spending it , and then limit what you do spend on future purchases if that makes sense
