The flip side of that coin is that pressure, real or perceived, can force us to rush and 'just get it done'. Adding the speedy "just" seems to take away from the quality of the action.
I've recently applied that line of thinking to my shopping and I've found that there is tremendous savings in there... We all know it, it's not a big secret, but it has not been an active part of my plan. It should be. When you take the pressure out of the purchase, you remove the "just", and increase the quality of the decision.
Prices are at a premium when things are in demand the most. Duh. But do you actively plan and are you disciplined enough to consistently benefit from this cyclical fact of the marketplace? I don't. I should do better.
2 Take-away actions for me to improve:
~ I will take the pressure OFF by actively planning and looking OFF-$eason.
~ Every time I walk into a store... self, "Find the clearance rack."
This isn't anything we don't already know but the key is to make it a habit, part of the plan and eventually what you do instinctively. That's where the DailySaving is...
How do you make this work for you?
