The way Americans tend to buy things: A person who has $20 will buy something for $40 if it’s marked down from $100.
Getting into debt is easy if the temptation of a deal outweighs the fact that you don’t have the money to buy something. Although one of the hardest things in the world to do, cultivate the ability to walk away from a bargain if it means spending money you don’t have. It is generally better to wait until you have sufficient funds to buy what you wanted at a price that is fair.
