The Hawthorne Effect
I picked up and put down this little Midwinter cake stand umpteen times yesterday. I really wanted to buy it as it's just so cute! I can picture lovely sweeties and slices of cake (albeit small slices) decorating our dining table, and it was only £3.99.
But I didn't buy it.
Very recently we've started recording every non-food and essential household item we buy, and as a consequence the Hawthorne Effect has come into play and we've been talking ourselves out of potential purchases simply because we don't want to put them in the book!
It's the wrong colour for our house anyway.
