How about “I’ve had a really bad day/week/month and only this ________ will cheer me up?” Not that I know anyone who has done that.

“I have wanted to buy this item for more than 48 hours and if I don’t purchase it today it will be gone forever and I will never find another one like it ever as long as I live.”

All this does is make me kick myself for the number of times I should have splurged and didn’t. I think I need to learn to think a little bit more like Logan.
