How do I save money and still be able to afford the nice things in life?
I save up for it. If I don’t have the money, I don’t buy it. Sure, I buy everything on credit card (to get PC Financial points!!!) but I always have that money in the bank to pay it off immediately that week, or even when i come back from the shopping trip that day.
Also? Buy things that are out of season. Buying your new winter coats in the spring when there are huge sales. Buy from a wholesale store when you’re looking for a new bistro set (that’s what we did! and we saved money. All of the wholesales, closeouts, liquidations centers deal with seasonal items for when you want to decorate christmas, valentines, easter, halloween . Always great prices when you buy out of season. There are thousands of items all at wholesale or closeout prices. Visit their website is www.sav-on-closeouts.com.
