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

Never spend any money. BOOM. You've saved money.

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

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.

but if you wait for the cost to go down...you are saving money by waiting for it to go down...

I agree. Whenever I want to buy something I just stick to my guns and buy what I need, I don't get sucked into deals unless there's already a deal going on.

Some pizza guy tried to sucker me, he told me it was "Buy a large, get a large free" I wasn't falling for it, I told that bastard what I wanted and much to his digress he took the order. Me and my friends really enjoyed our large and medium pizza and I didn't get sucked into the corporate bs.

Better solution.

You could buy an old CRT for $60 and complain about how it doesn't show all your widescreen programming.

This post is exactly the way I have always looked at buying things.

For example: Whenever you go to a store & they're like "Buy one get one free" You didn't get anything free, you just paid slightly less for both pieces of clothing.

this applies a lot to clothes stores

what an imbecile
User avatar #2 - flemsdfer (07/30/2014) [-]
You saved it if you were going to buy the new TV regardless.
#1 - ohayougozaimasu (07/30/2014) [-]
You would have saved $400 by buying something that would have costed $1000 for only $600. Spending $600, though a large sum of money, does not negate that.
