Wait 72 hours. Think about something you want for 3 days. Food and medicine and necessities do not fall into this category, like, “Do I want to pay my mortgage this month?” Some things are not optional.
The point is to develop self-control. Our addiction is Amazon . . . for toys, for books, for tools, for whatever. In our household, Amazon is like the biggest toy store you can imagine, and like little kids, we want one of everything! Where my sister lives, 40 miles outside of a town in the middle of nowhere, Amazon is perfect for purchase of bulk items, like TP. We have Costco five miles away.
Hence, the 3-day wait period. Will do!
