Financial Tip Friday – But it was on sale!

Closets, kitchen drawers, tool sheds and toy-boxes are full of things that never get worn, used, dirty or played with simply because they were purchased while “on sale”.

To some people, the word S-A-L-E is something they can’t resist. To the business, the word S-A-L-E is a lure based off the M.S.R.P which, let’s face it, can be absolutely ridiculous depending upon the logo that the item bares.

But it’s a limited time! If we buy now it comes with a free gift! I know I already 5 of them, but this price is too good! I’ll use it someday…maybe. Tell that to all the “cheap” stuff you already have.

The fact of the matter is, just because something is on sale doesn’t mean it’s a good deal; and if we don’t need it then we paid too much for it whether it was on sale or not.

Don’t get sold on sales. Be sensible. Stop being impulsive. Save your money.

There is a store of great value in the house of the wise, but it is wasted by the foolish man.” (Proverbs 21:20 – BBE)
