I practiced great self control inside a Bed, Bath & Beyond store today. They send me large sized coupons almost daily, the more I collect the more I want to go and use them. There could be a case study here for direct mail response. Anyway my self-control was at an all time high and I tweeted about it. You walk in that store and instantly feel like you need to buy lots of stuff. Stuff like; bags that won't let your produce go bad as fast as it could, wire thingys that hold your sponge neatly in the sink and all the "As Seen on TV" stuff you could handle.
My teenager follows me around dutifully because I wouldn't let her stay in the car and listen to the radio "but mom I'm supporting your industry" she'll use against me. I won't let an animal stay in a hot car and I'm not letting my kid.
We travel through the store in search on the two items I think I really need. My daughter is not a fan of shopping and thankfully pushes me through the isles reminding me that "I don't need that". Until I come to the iPod gadget sections then I reminder her that 'she doesn't need any more of that stuff." Besides we gotta head back out to the car to and 'support my industry." When I arrived at home I remembered that Memorial Day online sales are still happening and my self control was not so good, and I tweeted about hiking pants, work out wear, mattresses and how much I enjoy shopping without the temptation of a food court or my kid. Twitter is taking the place of a therapy session me thinks.
