Soon the back to school sales will be followed by the Halloween specials and the Christmas shopping season. We’ll encounter dozens or hundreds of objects that are labeled as costing less than usual. 10% off. Save 50%.
If money is tight or you just don’t want to be wasteful, consider each item and ask yourself if you’ll still want it in a few months and whether you really need it at all, at any price.
Remember, you save 100% when you don’t buy it at all.
