5 Ways to Limit Impulsive Buying(冲动购买)
Being that I worked in a grocery store for 7 years, I know quite a bit (相当多) about impulsive purchases. In fact, I helped (sadly to say) push certain products by placing them in a certain fashion. Through the experience, I tend to (趋向于) know some of the best ways to counter (v. 反击,反驳) the impulsive nature of buying things that are unnecessary.

  1. Don't Bring the Kids. You wouldn't believe how much more junk (n.垃圾, 无用的东西) parents buy for their kids that is completely impulsive.

  2. Bring Exact Cash. I like to use my debit card (n.借记卡) because I am able to track (v.追 踪) every penny better, but holding and letting go of cash is much tougher for me personally. So, if I am going through a tough time budgeting properly, I will bring the allotted (v.分配的, 额定的) amount of cash to the place of business and only allow that to be used.

  3. Ignore Salesman. If you are at a department store and someone asks if you need help, try to ignore their push as much as possible. Sure, if you know nothing about laptops(n.笔记本), get their advice, but even then I suggest doing your research pre-shop.

  4.Create a Impulse Piggy Bank (储蓄罐). Make life easy on yourself. If you love to buy the fitness or gossip magazines at the newsstand, then buy a gift card from the store you purchase it for $10 and only allow that to be used for impulsive shopping. You will start to realize what of those impulsive shopping things you really want.

  5. If a Celebrity is Pushing it, Pull Back(向后拉,撤退). There's a tendency to be highly influenced by the promotion of products. So, if it isn't being promoted, you will probably buy the cheaper and more appropriately priced item.
参考译文: 作为一个在百货商店工作 7 年的人,我知道不少冲动购物的事.事实上,(不好意思地说)我曾经把商品置 于时尚之中来推动这些商品的销售.通过这些经历,我能了解到一些克服冲动购物,买一些不必要东西的 好方法.

  1. 不要带着孩子购物. 你可能不相信有如此多无用的东西是因为在冲动之下,父母为孩子购买的.
  2. 按需带钱 我喜欢用借记卡,因为这样我就能更好地追踪每笔走的去向,但手持现金,然后花掉它们对我来说是更艰 巨的一件事情.所以我正在经历一段合理制定预算的困难期,我就会带上额定的薪金去购物,并且只允许 适用这么多现金.
  3.忽视促销人员 如果你在百货公司,有人询问你是否需要帮助,请尽可能地忽视他们的促销.当然,如果你对笔记本一无 所知,你可以去获取他们的建议,即使如此我还是建议你先在购物前做好功课.
  4. 建立一个"冲动购物储蓄罐" 你自己就可以让生活更简单.如果你总喜欢在报摊上购买健身或八卦杂志,那么花 10 美金购买商场礼品 卡,把它只用作冲动购物消费.你将慢慢意识到这些冲动购买的东西里哪些是你真正需要的.
  5. 如果一个明星在推销它, 那么就撤退吧. 很有可能大受推销中的产品的影响. 所以, 如果无人推销的话, 你很有可能会买到更便宜和价格更适合的物品.
A Diamond in the Rough 深藏不露
一些人心地很好,却可能没有得体的利益和华丽的外表.这时,就可以用此个短语来形容那些人.也可以 用来形容在看似黯淡的局势下,暗藏着一丝生机.
Examples: I was surprised to see that prisoner cleaning the streets stop and give the $100 bill he found to his supervisor. He might just be a diamond in the rough. 我很惊讶地看到那个囚犯在清扫街道 的时候把捡到的 100 美元交给了看管人员.他或许是深藏不露吧.
Perhaps if your company went bankrupt, but through this difficult situation you gain an idea or other opportunity, you could also call the situation a "diamond in the rough." 如果你的公司 要破产了, 在如此艰苦的环境下你还得到了一个主意或是一个机会. 你就可以把这个情况叫做"diamond in the rough".
