2. Keep on educating yourself about the money spent
While you are walking down the street full of the souvenir shops, it is a common thing when your eyes are being attracted by various unique souvenirs that you think you have to bring them all home. If you will be in that situation, remind yourself what the souvenirs are for and who you are giving them to.
