I'm 67 now, so missing sales doesn't bother me at all, but it did when I was in my 20's and just a working girl.

I might be aggravated if it was an expensive item that I would likely buy only once and missed a great sales price. I wouldn't be upset over something like mascara being 10% off instead of 25% off. It isn't that expensive and it will be on sale again.

I do hate spending money i didn't need to spend. My daughter wants this dress at kohls. My gf offered me a coupon - $10 off of $30 and it expired yesterday. i really do not want to spend $10 more today. :(

If you take your receipt back and speak to the manager/ owner. Maybe they will give you a price adjustment?

I am not sure about Malaysia, but over here they will usually give you one price adjustment. Within two weeks of the original purchase.

I get rid of my mascara regularly. So I always like to shop around and get it on sale. I heard once of a woman losing her eye to rancid mascara.

I try to buy everything on sale. If it goes on sale again you may be able to get a price adjustment. I would look for coupons, I always buy cosmetics with coupons.

you save more money buying something when you really need it than buying something because it's a great deal. When you need it at the best price.

Aargh Elaine, that's terrible! What a disaster!! (Just kidding!)

I like bargains, and will go out of my way to get a bargain - but if I miss it, it's not the end of the world. I either pay the price or go without.

I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

I'm not a big shopper and don't wear much makeup. I have a tube of mascara that is probably over 5 years old. I know you are supposed to throw it out but if I want to use it, I do. I've never had adverse affects from using old mascara. I'm not suggesting anybody else do the same, but I guess the answer to the question is that I don't stress over missing sales even on products that I might wish to buy. I figure another sale will come soon enough and I'll just wait for it.

I don't shop that much, but do like the Kohl's sales.

Nope - I DON'T hate it! I only wear make-up maybe once or twice in a year, so I REALLY ENJOY SAVING MONEY and not feeling I have to waste it on unimportant things. When you don't have the money you need to prioritize - makeup comes pretty much at the bottom of my list.

My mascara has dried up, so I needed to buy a new tube. I got mine at 10% off but if I had bought it last week, it would have been 25% off!!! ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!
