We all do it, we subscribe to the newsletter online, or in person at checkout. And then we’re bombarded with emails constantly showing us this deal or that deal or, “New arrivals selling out fast” and “Quick, you don’t want to miss this!”
But yes, you do want to miss this.
It’s all very intelligently designed to play on our insecurities and our fears and anxieties. But here’s the truth: no matter how good that deal is, you’re still spending money…and not necessarily purposefully.
If that item is $200 and now 50% off, you’re still spending $100 of your hard earned dough. And also, possibly not addressing the real reason behind your action: what’s driving you?
Unsubscribe. Unsubscribe. Unsubscribe. From all the newsletters. I keep 2-3 of my favorites, and unsubscribed from the rest. I’m okay missing out. Embrace JOMO and just unsubscribe. This way you take away the temptation. And no, your life won’t be less than without that dress/top/eye shadow.
