How I buy less stuff with scheduling

Sometimes I want something. I usually research a ton and then I β€œneed” an expensive thing. It's not even funny how much I research.

But, I do not buy immediately. I just schedule a task or event in my calendar a few weeks ahead.

If that day arrives and I still have the urge I will buy the thing.

Mostly I forgot about the thing and I don't buy. Less stuff and saved up some money.
