I'm personally not an impulse purchaser most of the time, I have been raised being careful in expending money. But, I know lots of people who have this tendency to purchasing impulsively, and I think it can be enjoyable and pleasurable and at the same time, addictive and Regrettable. But we should consider it's not just about our tendency to this habit, but also there are so many factors involved that influence our brain and lead us to make such decisions at the moment, like those tricks that sellers are using to tempt us into buying unnecessary goods. but we can't blame them as well. we should be aware and wise enough to make the right decision. ***is it ok that I started my writing with the I pronoun and then switched it into the WE pronoun?***

I'm not an impulse purchaser most of the time; I have been raised to be careful when it comes to spending money. I do however know a lot of people who have the tendency to purchase impulsively; I think it can be enjoyable and pleasurable at the same time, and also addictive and regrettable. We should consider that it is not only our tendency to shop impulsively, but there are many factors involved that influence our thinking and lead us to take decisions at the spur of the moment, including the marketing tactics used by sellers to entice us to buying unnecessary goods. We can't lay all the blame on retailers and we should be aware and wise enough to make the right decision. *** is it ok that I started my writing with the I pronoun and then switched it into the WE pronoun?*** I tried to clean it up for you, that is how I would write it but my compliments on a good effort and very nice sentence construction. You make a compelling argument

I'm not an impulse purchaser most of the time; I was raised to be careful when it comes to spending money. I do, however, know a lot of people who have the tendency to purchase impulsively. I think that impulse spending can be enjoyable and pleasurable at the same time and also addictive and regrettable. We should consider that it is not only our own inclination to shop impulsively, and that other factors also influence our thought patterns and decision making. Retailers often use manipulative marketing strategies to tempt us to buy unnecessary goods, but we can't blame them alone, we should be aware and wise enough to make the right decisions. Hi There. I tried to respond from my mobile device. This is the way I would phrase it. I want to complement you on your use of the first person, as well as using the past continuous tense. you can switch from I to we, because your meaning has changed. In the first part you are referring to your own experience, and when you switch to "we" it is nicely done because you are then generalising to best practices. A tip: It is never a good idea to start a sentence with "but" and however is sometimes more suitable. ***is it ok that I started my writing with the I pronoun and then switched it into the WE pronoun?***
