All this time I thought I was spending too much because Amazon was so convenient and for some reason I have a love for Costco....but now I have my last name to blame.
tl;dr: There are MANY things that influence our spending decisions.
- Which products are next to each other on the shelf influences what we buy. In fact, one product can catch “cooties” from another.
- Attractive salespeople mess with our heads too, especially if they touch the products. Truth is, we’re more satisfied after buying from good-looking people.
- Stores use lots of tricks to get us to spend. Limits on how many items we can purchase make us purchase more. So does stocking fewer items.
