Impulsive Shopping And Shopping Diet
Let’s be real here for a minute. We all love shopping and when we see something we like, WE HAVE TO GET IT! We don’t know about you but we don’t even use half the stuff we buy because we figure out later that we didn’t really need it. So we did a bit of thinking and we noted down a few things where we cannot stop ourselves and we also figured out a way to solve the problem. We went on a shopping diet!
Our top impulses:
So now that you know you have an Impulsive Shopping Disorder, you must diet!
Why? : 1. You save money.
2. You have more space at home.
3. You can shop more.
Yeah so what is a Shopping Diet?
Just like a normal food diet (which is not very normal), you need to have different things in a limit. For example: You can have a dessert once in a month. Similarly in a Shopping Diet, you can shop for only 3 nail-paints a month. (Don’t worry, the Maybelline Glittermania is out of stock anyways)
Here is a diet:
And so on. Give yourself a budget for a month. Say Rs. 5000. You have to buy everything in that budget. You cannot use more.
Decide your diet according to your needs.
To check how much of a shopaholic are you, just enter your room and scan through all the drawers. Or take a test online. Whatever.
When you shop less, you can save your pocket money.
So we hope you enjoyed this post and make sure you go and visit our blog!
We are going to be doing an article on how to save money while shopping in Colaba and Bandra soon. So Stay Tuned.

I have started a new series of blog posts where startup stories will be featured. While surfing, I found an amazing venture which sells art and craft work online.

Inspired by wanting to create handmade customized gifts for family and friends, Papers & Pins was born in 2013.
Ankita Narula often created little gifts and craft work as a hobby and soon realized her hobby was in fact a lovely opportunity to share her work on a larger scale, and so Papers & Pins was born.
She quoted “if not a crafter, I would have been a lecturer”.
Ankita, an MBA by qualification, had a strong passion for craft work since childhood. She collected cute little stationary items and made craft items & gifts, although she had no intention of converting her hobby into business. Her cousins and friends always told her to start a craft business. Inspired by everyone’s praise for her creativity, Ankita soon realized that papercraft was her forte, and so Papers & Pins came into light.
Papers & Pins, a world of handmade customized paper craft gifts, is committed to creativity and innovation and offers an assortment that allows its customers to express themselves through their creativity. Papers & Pins creates each and every piece to order so each one is completely authentic and entirely unique.
A greeting card, personalized stationery, a lovely invitation, a beautifully wrapped gift, or an engagement announcement – Papers & Pins believe that each offers a unique opportunity for creative expression in everyday life.

We all had that one Annoying Classmate in school who used to complain to the class teacher about the stupidest of the things.
