Interesting.  I wonder

Interesting.  I wonder how that relates to internet shopping?

 

Seriously, I find that I can go looking for something and end up in that type of mental space before I actually decide to whip out the plastic. In fact, I have evolved some personal rules to keep myself under control. For example, there is a rule that I hold to when I am on ebay: Whatever I see, I never need it so badly that it is not worth waiting several weeks for the “right auction” to come around. If I need anything faster, I have to buy it locally.
