Frugal Tip Tuesday: Think Before You Buy

Before you make the plunge for a high-cost purchase. Wait a day or two and see if you really want the item. This can be anything from TV stands to a new car to a new outfit.

Also, search high and low for a coupon. Depending upon the savings, it can sometimes be beneficial to buy coupons on Ebay.

Wait for the item to go on sale if it's something that isn't a rush. For example, if you know you'll need a patio set, wait until the end of the summer season to make the purchase. Prices will be at their lowest. Add a coupon to that sale price and you're really saving money.

See if it's worth to buy the item used. Grills, furniture, large kids toys -- these are all great items to buy used.

How do you make sure to maximize cost savings when you're making a purchase?

  1. Oh my!!! You are just too true to be good. How do you manage to write and research on such wonderful things? You have inspired me to work harder now. I shall try as much as possible to enjoy life to the fullest and be satiated with the wonderful things that are around me, which I have been unaware of until now.
