Two Ways To Save A Lot On Sales
There are some people who love a good sale. They have plans about what to do, how to handle the sale, how many items to buy, who to tell, etc. Sometimes when they make purchases from a sale, they actually use the item or product they purchase. Often, it does not matter whether or not they can use it. All that matters is that it is on sale and they are saving money! Are they really saving money? That’s what the seller wants you to think.
10%, 20%, or 50% off! I agree that it can be pretty tempting to make a purchase for an item that has been marked down 50%! How many sale items do you have in your home or on your shelf or in a closet collecting dust? Did you buy those items because you needed them or because you could not pass up a good deal? Many people see the word “sale” and they think it means that they have to buy something. They have to buy it whether or not they need or want it. Retailers know that. That’s why something always seems to be on sale. In fact, it may have been overpriced before it went on sale, so the retailer isn’t going to lose any money. But there is no need to worry about that. The important thing is to truly save money. One of the ways to start saving money is to understand that “sale does not mean buy”.
If you pass over a sale, it doesn’t mean that you have missed out on something. You will be ok. In fact, you will probably be better off. How many times have you bought food items on sale that ended up expiring and had to be thrown out? How many times have you bought an item that was on sale and never used it and ended up donating it to a charitable organization because it was taking up space that you needed for new items you had purchased on sale? If you find a sale on something you intended to purchase now or in a month or so, then seeing it on sale is a great find! You should probably buy it. The important thing is saving money instead of wasting money. One of the most best ways to save money is not to spend it! If you see something on sale that you did not intend to buy and you don’t need, then save 100% by not buying it! You might feel bad at first, but your budget, checking account and savings account will thank you later. If you don’t have either of these but would like to know more about setting them up, then contact me here. I will be glad to talk with you. Remember, if you don’t need it, then don’t buy it. All the best.
