When your index finger gets carried away on the computer mouse, errors can occur on the internets! We present to you some tips for channeling your impulses without compromising your good intentions!

1. Take time to think before you buy

Imagine yourself faced with a product from the other side of the globe, displayed at a knockdown price on an attractive platform (or rather at €9.99, because who can really assess the value of “good deals”?). Take the time to question yourself:

  • Was the product made nearby or on the other side of the world?
  • Does this country respect the rights of workers, women, minorities?
  • What could have been the working conditions of the seamstresses?
  • What is the composition of the product?
  • Do you really need it? Do you already have a similar item in your wardrobe (duplicate use would be a shame)?

Even if your index finger has given way, limiting your purchases is already a first step! Congratulations !

2. Give yourself a break

If your index finger shows signs of anxiety, you may be stressed. Give yourself a break from the screen: a nap, a book, an hour-long walk within a mile radius, tending to your plants, a board game, or simply a call. e friend... Opt for what gives you well-being. The fleeting comfort of impulsive shopping only brings temporary satisfaction...

3. Find out about the origin of the products

Take a few moments to consult the labels and verify the manufacturing origin of the product. Quickly, you will consider putting the article down, thinking about the deplorable working conditions and the exorbitant margins offered to big brands. If you're in front of your screen, don't hesitate to encourage your index finger to contact the relevant brand by email for information on the origin of the product. Getting information is an elementary reflex!

4. Promote sustainable and locally made products

Make the effort to buy a durable product made in France one time out of four. The path to virtue is taken step by step, so start with small steps and progress gradually. You will be surprised at your ability to do more!

5. Apply the KISSES method

The KISSES method is simple and can transform your compulsive purchases into reasoned consumption:

  • B: Do I NEED it?
  • I: is this an IMMEDIATE need?
  • S: Do I have something SIMILAR?
  • O: do I know the ORIGIN of the product?
  • U: is it USEFUL?
  • S: do I have the MONEY?

Asking yourself these questions is already taking a step towards more reasoned consumption and you will then make your decision by accepting the answers.

Come on, big kisses and see you soon!
