A Wallet That Curbs Your Impulse Shopping

It’s never easy to tell your loved one that they have a problem such as a shopping addiction, and is hard to confront your partner without hurting their feelings, so what do you do?

Here is a perfect gift for your partner. This gift is a way for you to show your support, care, and love while also helping your partner remember to shop more responsibly.

Jin Hong designed this “Partner Wallet” to help people ditch their impulse shopping problems. Citing a Psychology Today article, which said, “Arguments over money are the number one reason for relationship stress and breakups,” Hong suggests giving the wallet to a loved one who can’t stop spending.

This wallet is specially designed to help your partner stop themselves from spending impulsively. It has four zippers, which delay the process of paying and provide more time for her to rethink the purchase. Paying for an item takes longer, and the buyer has to think about whether the purchase is really worth it as she sees the notes on the zipper’s pull-tabs saying:

  • “I believe in U”
  • “You will beat your shopping impulses”
  • “You are in control of your finances,” and
  • “You know it’s never too late to stop.”

If it took me that long to get to my stash of cash, I’d certainly reevaluate my unnecessary spending.
