If you go to the store intending to spend $1000, and then only spend $600. then you have saved $400, because its money you didn't plan on having before. If you bought the tv just because it was $400 off and had no intention of buying it before, that is just spending 600$.

No... when I am planning to buy a $1000 television, I'm operating under the assumption that I will be minus $1000. IF I then find the television for $600, I have saved $400 relative to the money that I was planning to spend, and my net worth has increased by a total of $400, as I am now also in possession of a $1000 TV

See in my house, if there's food it gets eaten. We'd have got belted when we were kids if we never finished everything.

Actually you made $400 because you lost $600 of free cash but gained $1000 of assets.

Only if you can sell the TV for $1000. Chances are it's value drops for the simple fact that you would be the one selling it. Why would anyone buy a TV from you for 1000 when they could buy it from the store for 1000 and have the security of a return policy and warranty and stuff.

Actually it's the opposite; you MAKE $400. If you go to Best Buy expecting to buy a really nice $1000 TV, you have already adjusted your budget (even if it's just mentally) to subtract $1000. If you get to the store and find that the TV you were going to buy is now on sale for only $600, you aren't just saving $400, but you actually MADE $400. Since you're budget had already been adjusted to lose the $1000, you essentially just made $400.

Think of it like you had spent $1000 and then found 4 hundred dollar bills on the ground on your way home. Making money is all about the mentality.

I understand, what you're saying, but it's pretty wrong. If you accumulate 1000$, and allocate it for a specific purpose, or purchase, and suddenly, that purchase is now 600$, then you've simply freed up 400$ of your budget. There's no real gain here, but rather a loss of 600 as opposed to 1k. If, however, you're given 100$, buy the thing for 600$, then make off with the 400$, THEN you have a gain.

Sure, subjectively that can be technically true.

Objectively, factually even, you spent $600.

Also I think this is more aimed for people who make a purchase, solely due to the mark down/ sale. "Oh hey look, this $1000 tv is only $600 dollars with this sale. I just saved $400 dollars." Sales a lot of the time, cause people to buy something they otherwise may not have bought because they feel like they've acquired something more valuable than what they paid for it. In the end, they walked out of the store with $600 less than they walked in with, justifying that $600 loss with the $400 they didn't spend.

Mentality doesn't change fact, it's just a way to stay positive. You could get into a car accident and say "Well, my car may be totaled, but it's not like I'll need it anymore since my spine is broken, plus at least I'm alive." Your still a cripple with no car, you just a cripple with no car that is less bummed about it than he could be.

You never lost it to begin with. You PLANNED to spend it, but you didn't ever lose possession of the physical money. You can't earn money you already own, so you didn't MAKE anything. You just didn't spend it, which is saving it.
