Window Shopping is Expensive, Too

Window shopping, that is frequenting malls, stores, or commercial websites without purchasing anything,  can be as expensive as shopping with money. How can that be?    Window shopping focuses your time and attention on spending money instead of making it.   And, chances are, the next time you get your hands on extra money or have the opportunity to request a gift, you will use that opportunity to buy whatever you were admiring on your last window shopping spree.
Instead, try spending time in the company of your friends or family, meeting new people (e.g. through networking events, meet-up.com) ,thinking about making money , or improving your skills. For example, try visiting the library to check out the latest book on some topic of interest from which you could make a few dollars. Be creative. Just remember that the mall is not a vacation destination.
