I'm working on the TWENTY $ Challenge

February 5th, 2007 at 01:44 am

I have to say I am having some MIXED thoughts on working out the challenge in my head.
Let me explain HOW I live very Frugal and only buy purchases when I know the price has dropped.

I do learn prices and I do comparison shop.

My issue is: Did I really SAVE.

EXAMPLE : NEW CAR - 29,000.00 Negotated price - 20,000.00

I don't see it as I SAVED anything because I would NOT have made the purchase at 29,000.

I guess this is just twisted in my mind.
I do feel I save when I use grocery store coupons ONLY on the items I was ALREADY going to buy.

Please give me Some ideas on the best way to identify a savings.

    To my mind savings is money in the bank. You don't save anything by buying cheaper unless you put that money aside. OK, if you find a really good deal on something you need, say canned tomatoes, it makes sense to stock up because you know you're going to use it. But if the money you save just sits in your pocket it's begging to be spent on something else that you probably DON'T need.

    Tina,

    I agree totally.

    But, reading over the many posters comments I was totally confused.
