Window shopping in Fairbanks is browsing stores online
In a couple of posts this month, I used the term insomniac shopping. I use that term for browsing online pages after 8 pm. This browsing of webpage is the modern version of the window shopping that I used to do on Sunday afternoons in Germany in the 90s. Just looking, getting ideas, inspiration, learning what is out there, but not buying. Well, it is not only the modern version of window shopping, but also the only one you can do in Fairbanks. In winter, it would be too cold, in summer too busy with all the tourist, if there were window shopping opportunities at all.
Avoid impulse buying by bookmarking
I have a pact with myself to not shop after 8 pm. Thus, during my insomniac online shopping I bookmark items that I like. If I still remember what I had bookmarked I think of at least three outfits with the item I love. Thus, if the item passes these tests then I buy it. Thus, my rule of thumb is: If you still want it after 24 hours and can make more than 3 outfits with it get it.
Do you have a rule when/what to buy? If you want to share it with me send me an email. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Stay in style.
