Large Purchases

This Sparked Me!

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.

    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.
