Most of the items that you see on supermarket shelves are there to instigate your buyer’s itch. They call to you, speak to your ear to buy them, even if you don’t actually need them. Of course, if you are one of those mentally strong people, then you will laugh at this. However, I, myself, belong to the group known as impulse buyers and boy do I struggle to resist this urge.
It all comes down to how accessible some of these services and products are. I can subscribe to Netflix without getting out of my bed; I can get a pizza with no cash in my wallet, etc. Sure, these are convenient ways to consume products, but it is because of them that we overspend.
Luckily, this comic book styled infographic is here to show us how to become spending-savvy superheroes.

It’s time to go head to head with marketing companies and regain control of my expenses.
