Skip the sales? Yes, just skip the sales. It isn’t always worth it, and no this isn’t just crazy talk.
When retailers are loudly screaming at you (via advertisements) to visit their store and shop, you can just say, “no,” and save yourself the price of those un-purchased items and the time of the visit. As Stefanie O’Connell, blogger (her blog), points out, “just because something is on sale doesn’t make it a good deal or worth buying.
This is SO true! I know plenty of people who see that it is on sale so they feel the need to buy it even if it isn’t necessary. I’ve found myself doing this, also. I think most of us can relate.
If we stop buying what we really don’t need, then we can really save.
Your customers are just as risk-averse in real-life buying situations. They’d rather not spend their money at all if they believe the purchase has enough risk of being a “loss” — even if it means missing out on the gains offered by your product or service. This is right out of a great article found here.
I want to hear from you!
How do you stop yourself from overspending? How do you just say NO to sale items?
Do you have this issue?
