There has been an obvious boom in online shopping in Ghana since Covid came last year. It’s so easy to buy; all you have to do is pick an item, pay and someone will bring it to your doorstep. It can become addicting, especially when you’re buying things that you don’t need. These simple hacks will help you overcome that online shopping addiction.
Delete The Apps
The first thing that you need to do to get over your online shopping addiction is to delete the apps that you use to shop. If they’re on your phone, then you might be tempted to open them just to “window shop” or browse through items, and then you’re going to end up buying things that you really don’t need.
Ask Google To Show You Less Product Ads
You might not be aware but when you’re constantly seeing ads from your favourite online store on every website you visit, it can be a trigger to do some online shopping. Your Ads are usually based on your web history, but you can always close a specific ad manually so that you’re shown fewer ads like that one.
Deactivate The Cards
You can’t have an online shopping addiction if you can’t pay for the items that you want. If you’re having trouble avoiding spending, or you’re constantly buying things online even when you hadn’t meant to then your last resort is to reactive your card. Most banks will allow you to take money from your account through momo so it shouldn’t be too inconvenient for you. You just won’t be able to buy any more unnecessary items online.
