My first impulse buy was a room camera that didn't function. Then I bought a refurbished video camcorder that has met its' time. A dvd player that is also refurbished and now obsolete. I'm glad I bought my chaise lounge chair though. It's great for guests to sit on while i'm on the internet. I like my 48" circular earth rug. I bought the Planet Earth CDs which is too cool for words. I purchased four video bean bags from Walmart and cancelled at the last minute since I've no room for them. I bought a 60" DLP TV for more than I should have paid. It's a cool tv though if the remote control would only work. My portable tv needs new batteries. My new sony camcorder is a bit shaky to use but is handy. I only go to the mall when there is a sale. I spent 500 on my digital camera. ( Good investment. ) Takes nice clear pics even at night. I almost bought a new computer desk but don't like the hassle of putting it together. I bought an ipod dock for 20 bucks. (Great bargain because it is green). I bought a sticker maker and made a lot of anime stickers in a craft store. My most recent purchase is glow in the dark paint to put "stars" on my ceiling. I got paint all over me so I started glowing in the dark. :P
I used to buy tons of things on impulse. Here's a truncated list:
-mini remote control car
-mini remote control submarine
These days, things have changed since I own my own place, money is definitely scarce and I keep a tight leash on my spending. But, if you don't have bills/expense, spend away and help feed our starving economy. ^_-!
I am a total impulse shopper. If I have money and I'm at a retail establishment, my wallet's at the will of the universe. I'm gettin' better at controlling my impulses, y'know, budgeting and all. But it wasn't easy. If I'm in GameStop (to this day), I wander around for anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours--indesiciveness sucks--and eventually, I walk out with a game or five. If I'm lucky, the devil and angel on my shoulders will start boxing and the angel wins, keeping my wallet full. :laugh:
Almost everything I own has been bought via impulse: My DS, PSP, laptop--still debating on whether my TV is out of impulse or necessity--and a massive amount of other crap in my house included. (Over the span of about fifteen years or so, all my stuff is from money burning holes in my pocket...)
