So today I heard someone at the store say, “Why not? It’s on sale and Christmas is coming soon…I was going to buy this but didn’t know it was only $20! That’s a great deal.”
I totally understand. That is probably a good idea, too. I never plan ahead, buy things on sale 4 months ahead of schedule. But, I know other people who are diligent and committed to being prepared and staying on a budget.
Being frivolous would be saying “why not” buying any old thing that you don’t need and didn’t want until you saw it advertised. It’s easy to get caught up in the commercialism, the market pressure and the act-now mantra. Harder to be able to say no and wait for the right thing or, maybe even nothing.
