Secrets of Success

Large Purchases




Always go back home and "sleep on it" before signing a contract to make a large purchase. This will keep you in control and not allow your emotions to carry you into a purchase that is not practical or wise.

  • So true...this is great advice to live by. We've practiced this and it has kept us from making purchases that we didn't really need. - by DITZYCHICK
  • I started doing this about a year ago and I have saved a ton of money! Stuff just isn't as inviting with the second day perspective. I am considering going to the next level putting a price limit on immediate purchases e.g. Not buying anything over $25 till I have slept over it. - by PJVIRTUE
