So Do You Guys Wait For A Sale...
So do you guys, wait for a sale before purchasing something? Or do you say, '$crew it! Its my money, I'm gonna spend it the way i want to!!!'
The reason I asked was because yesterday was the start of a mall wide sale in one of the biggest shopping malls here in our country, I have no plans of buying anything or even going to the mall as I abhor crowded malls and we all know that sales are people magnets!!! Anyway, I was going to meet a friend in the same area, I decided to check out an item I had wanted to purchase a couple of months ago. I've into mixed martial arts, boxing, and muay thai (wrote about it here, http://personapaper.com/article/23935-my-muay-thai-training ) so I was looking for a new set of fight shorts. I saw one in a local sports shop in that mall but decided against buying it at that time because of its price. Truth be told, it really isn't expensive, I'm just a cheapskate!!! LOL! So when I first heard about the sale, buying the fight shorts was the first thought that came to mind. Alas, it wouldn't be as the fight short was not included in the sale and it is still being offered at its regular price.
Anyway, I decided not to purchase the fight shorts. I really didn't feel that bad because I know that if I really want to, I could purchase the fight shorts, sale or no sale. However, there lies the difference... I WANTED to buy the fight shorts... I DIDN'T NEED to buy it. Big difference there between WANT and NEED. So me deciding not to buy it was fine after a couple of minutes because I know I had made a good financial decision. The decision wouldn't make me a millionaire overnight but I know it is the right one for the long term.
So my fellow bubblers, do you wait for an item to go on sale before buying it or do you just go ahead and purchase the item?
Feel free to chime in my fellow PPers!!!
