#3 - Day before sale day: Check items, categories going to be on sale and determine whether you will buy any of those - This can prevent impulse buys.

#4 - Take note for discount codes and collect all vouchers - These are stackable, so use multiple vouchers to shave off more money from your purchase.

#5 - Buy from the same seller - There are store promos you can take advantage of like discounts and free shipping which saves you cash since your orders are delivered together.

#6 - Utilize memberships or the like bank promos and credit cards - Perks not offered to the general public will sometimes be offered to members of credit card companies and airlines.

#7 - Check price drops, flash sales & livestreams for more vouchers, discounts, rebates - Always take the time to visit different marketplaces and compare shops to get the best deal. Consider Signing up for merchants' newsletters or email lists, as many online retailers offer discounts just for giving them your email. You can always unsubscribe later, but many sites only offer discounts and promos the first time you visit, so take advantage.

Doing all these will save you some money as well as reducing impulse buys IF you stick to budget.
