A couple of years ago I was trying to explain to Steven that when something for sale is a really good deal, you just buy it! If you happen to need it - all the better, if not - maybe you can find a way to need it, or better yet, sell it and profit.
If you happen to need the item (and by need the item that means you cannot talk yourself into needing the item), then great. If not: WALK AWAY.
This theory of mine came back into discussion when I learned that Pier 1 Import Kids is going out of business and everything is on sale for 75% off. I got a little excited because
but for some reason, I did that thing where I talk myself into thinking - no, knowing - that I need them. Well, instead of paying $1148, I spent $287, and now I have a bunch of new beds in my house. And with new bunk beds, the kids have an automatic fort built into their room. What a bonus!
Buyer's remorse? Not today.
Just don't ask Steven the same question.
