Change of Strategy
Everyone is doing some belt-tightening nowadays. Even if people are not affected by the lay-offs, you feel the effects some other way. I already prefer to buy items that are on sale before this recession. Now, I get out of my way to find it. When I was looking for a pair of Ugg boots for my daughter, I didn't buy the first discounted pair I came across. I'm so glad that I waited because a couple of days later, I saw another website where I got a better deal. I only paid $75 for a pair of this popular boots. So the moral of the story is not to give in to impulse buying. Go home and think about it. You'll save a lot of $$ by doing this.
