Fashion: 'Buy less' in case you lose weight on Black Friday

Or all those purchases that we make in an impulsive way, thinking little and with pilgrim excuses whose investment can end up in stroping for the pocket.

Shoes that hurt

Investing money in footwear that is no longer comfortable with the idea that it will end up giving or will adapt to our last. Or buy that last pair of a model that fascinates but is not exactly your size as long as you do not miss the opportunity to seize them.

Beyond the expense that we do not know if it will finally be profitable, there is the risk of forcing using a shoe that can cause us short-term discomfort (blisters, chafing) or problems in the feet derived from carrying it too tight, such as the bunion.

A garment (face) intended to be a fleeting trend

The obsession to get that sheepskin coat that you will foreseeably end up seeing everywhere in the coming months or disburse more than 500 euros in the latest metallic down jacket. Spending a lot of money on garments and accessories called to be short cycle trends is not recommended for the average economy.

Large investments make more sense (and profitability) with timeless basics or those trends that will be present over five years. To cope with the craving an option is to resort to low cost versions.

Many cosmetics in one stroke

A huge investment with the intention of starting a daily Korean skin routine (10 steps) when you are one of those people who are usually lazy until they remove makeup do not seem to have a future. Better to pull common sense and stop to think how much time and money you are willing to devote to actually and, from there, look for specific products that adapt.

Any garment that you think is not your size or that you don't feel comfortable with. Buying under the excuse of 'I take it even if I stay tight because I think I will lose weight' or 'I'm baggy but I will recover' is an initiative that can easily turn against.

Not only are the months likely to pass and you still don't convince yourself how you look with her, but this one, hung on the hanger every time you open the closet, can become a dangerous incentive reminder of frustrations.

The nth anti aging cream when you still have full jars

That anxious feeling that in the tweet version that The Cut rescued in this Instagram post is summarized in: I'm dying because I run out of cosmetics so I can buy more cosmetics. The maximum anti-waste says that it is better to finish before buying.

Running shoes if you are not going to run

Any footwear designed specifically for an activity that we really do not do is intended to be an unnecessary expense. If the determination to achieve it really has to do with its aesthetics or what it represents, rather than with its specific use, the investment is likely to fail: the more specialized and developed a shoe is, the more expensive it will be.

The same repeated garment

Buy twice that sweater or skirt that you do not intend to remove throughout the fall for fear of wear, loss or never find one again.

The maximum expression of impulse buying that can be mitigated thinking that, if the garment with which we make ourselves is a trend, it is likely that within a couple of years you do not want to use it and that, if it is a basic one, there is always a chance to find it because there are more and more brands that make basic classics their hallmark.

Anything that is discounted only by the mere fact of being

If you would never have bought those checkered pants at their original price because you know that you were hardly going to wear it, why spend (even half) if, equally, you probably do not wear it more than twice? A logic applicable to any impulse that arises before the striking discount tag.

Everything for the gym (before joining the gym)

Buy the leggings, sweatshirts, sports bras, the bottle to carry water, the towel and go to sports for a month. The investment in technical clothing that is just used to walk around the house is avoidable if the habit is created before making the disbursement.

Getting along with what you have at home or investing just seems more sensible than making a great expense before ensuring relative continuity.
