Even though sales provide you with some lower prices, most of time, shoppers end up spending more money than they intended to.
This is purpose of sales. A store lowers their prices, announces and advertises a big sale, then hoards of people arrive. People come to sale, and generally spend much more money on merchandise they really don't need.
Be a smart shopper. If you find something at a sale that you really need, go ahead and buy it. When you start piling your cart full of stuff you really don't need, remember this article!
Plan a Shopping Budget
If you plan a monthly shopping budget, you'll find that you will become more "picky" about what you buy. Why you ask?
You don't want to spend your budget on useless items, right? Having a shopping budget will force yourself to answer most important question: Do I really need this?
If you know answer to this question, then you will know whether to buy or not. Moral of story: Plan yourself a shopping budget, don't spend it when you're upset, and ask yourself question: Do I really need this?
This will help minimize unnecessary purchase that we all make from time to time.
