How do you resist the temptation?

We all know the feeling! We go to a pet store for something specific, and you begin to gaze into the tanks.. You see a fish that is just so cool! But you know you cant/shouldn't get it. I have done this and ended up taking things back the next day. My question is. How do YOU get yourself through it?
