Every so often we have moments of impulsiveness. For some of us those moments are far and few between but for many of us, they come around nearly almost every single day.
We can be impulsive in a number of different ways – saying something we probably shouldn’t, merging across 5 lanes of traffic, eating a whole bag of chips in one sitting. But the most common of all is typicallyÂ buying something for no apparent reason.
In the case of impulsive shopping, the end result typically puts a significant dent in our bank account. A new pair of shoes, an 80″ 4K TV or even a car, can all set you back a couple bucks.
And in most cases, we were just trying to satisfy an itch for something new. The only logical course of action was to buy something expensive or flashy.
However, sometimes the impulse only desires for a “new” thing. Fortunately, this itch can easily be scratched by a cheap $15 item.
For that reason, we would like to help you out.
Over here at All I Wish Is headquarters, we are constantly searching for cool, sometimes useful, interesting, and inexpensive items that can satisfy your impulsive purchasing habits.
So without any further adieu, Â please enjoy our list 0f items under $15
