Stock Up or Save?

Attention, bargain hunters! When you see a great price on something you want to buy, do you get excited about how much you can save? The truth is you are not saving anything; you are simply spending less. The greatest fiction may be the “buy one, get one free” sale. You are not really getting anything free; you are getting two things at half price. If you need two boxes of spaghetti and would buy them anyway, great. But if you don’t need two toothbrushes or pairs of shoes or jars of applesauce, you are spending money on something you might not use.

Before you give in to temptation when you spot a sale, think about how often you use the product and how much space you have to store extras. Then decide if it really is a “bargain” for you to purchase in quantity. If not, save your money so you have it for something you really need.
