Something that helps me from buying impulsively is to imagine the state and place of the object in a few years from now. Will it wear poorly, easily scratch, or easily soak in dirt stains that are impossible to get out? Will it be covered in dust and hair, left to rot under some random household furniture at some later date, forgotten? Or will it be stuffed into my knick knack drawer a few months later either because it wasn't completely necessary is now takes up space and wasn't as useful as I thought it was? If it fits into these categories, I set it back down.
