Avoid Buy One Get One Free Offers
These are a waste of money for two reasons.
First they encourage you to buy more of an item than you really need.
Second they are often not true offers because the shops will increase the price of the item and you get a false discount.
Only buy what you need.
Buy Own Brand Goods
If you buy something with a brand name, you are wasting money on the maker’s advertising. It doesn’t matter whether it is clothes, cars or food, companies spend millions trying to persuade you to buy their goods and you foot the bill.
You can save a small fortune over the course of a year by switching to own brand products which are often even made in the same factories as the big brand goods.
Why Buy New?
There are certain things that we buy that we can find used and save a ton of money on.
Cars are the obvious one, why pay sales tax on a brand new car when you can buy used and put the savings to work for you.
