If taking in monthly installments, calculate that the installment can be covered by monthly income (generally applicable formulation: maximum 35% of the income). If credit card debt, make sure we can pay off when due date.

As a result so impulsive, crazy shopping, especially when there is a 0% installment. Just bewildered when reading the monthly bill. So, be wise!
