Thanks to the internet, it's now much easier to shop. In a matter of seconds we can buy pretty much anything online, from almost anywhere in the world. Sometimes, the ease with which we can make a purchase leads to impulse buying, as opposed to a planned purchase.
My most recent impulse buy was just a few minutes ago, which gave me the idea for this post. I was about to play a video game on Steam, and on the homepage I saw this game which was featured - A Plague Tale: Innocence. The lead image was plastered with excellent review scores, the game was awarded Steam's Outstanding Story-Rich Game Award, and it was on sale for 66% off. As someone who loves a good story, I decided to buy this game based solely on what I had learned about it in a minute. I know nothing else about the game, other than what I just saw on Steam. Textbook definition of an impulse buy.
What was the last thing that you bough on an impulse? Maybe you were window shopping and saw something you bought a few minutes later? Maybe you saw an ad for something online and instantly bought it? Don't worry, we won't judge you.
