- ARGH! How do I stop myself buying bits I don't need!?
A good one I’ve found recently is to write a list or save an excel spreadsheet with all the things you fancy impulse buying, so you can budget them into next month. Means you can prioritise your spending.
And the chances are, when you look at the list next time round, or after payday, you’ll look at most of them and realuise you don’t need or even want them that much. Specially if there are LOADS of things on the list.
Bit like counting to 10 if you’re getting angry, or waiting 15 minutes if you fancy stuffing your face with chocolate. Gives you a chance to take PP’s advice! Bypass the impulses and the reward centres in your brain lose interest.Posted 6 years ago
MTG – the house comes with a purpose built 17′ x 11′ studio/workshop in the garden. Cavity walled, double pitched slate roof, exposed beams, polished concrete floor, multi-fuel burner. Perfect for my bikes and motorbikes. Actually looking forward to winter in there!

Yeah the chances are if you have set your mind on the new brakes you are going to buy them sooner or later!
I would say, look at your bike and see if that money is better spent else where, new wheels? uppy downy seat post?
If you have the desire to spend and spend and spend at least make sure you are doing it properly!Posted 6 years ago
