How to Teach Your Kids to Avoid Impulse Shopping

An easy way to teach your kids not to buy things on a whim is to create a shopping list, take them shopping with you, and only purchase what is on your list. If you’re grocery shopping, only go down the aisles you need to – otherwise you’ll turn what will look like shopping into browsing. Not only can your kids help you comparison shop and make wise decisions about quantity and quality, they’ll also learn to shop by creating and sticking to a plan, rather than on impulse.
