Money Hack: How to stop spending so much money at Amazon
Stop pretending like you have any self-control when shopping online.
We've all been there. You're deep in an online shopping hole and the number of items in you cart has hit double digits. Before you know what's happened you've clicked "purchase" – and now you're scared to look at your bank balance.
Isn't there a better way?
If a lot of your shopping holes are dug at Amazon (which is likely on it's way to Australia), download the Amazon Contemplate Chrome extension. It will:
- Makes you wait 30 seconds before you're able to complete a purchase at Amazon
- Pop up when you add an item to your cart and ask if you really want to buy it
You can continue making your purchase by waiting for Amazon Contemplate to time out. Or, if you decide you really don't need that Nicholas Cage-inspired art, you can close the tab.
