It seems like it’s that time where a ton of retailers are offering clearance items to better prepare for the new fiscal year. I noticed more online retailers are doing it as well. There was one site that had a few items for $5 when normally the cost would be like $20. This made it a tempting purchases. However, it wouldn’t be enough to get free shipping and so buying that would mean having to buy a few other things to make the deal truly worth it.
For me this is usually a deal breaker to not buy it at all. I know a lot of people would still do it though. I just feel it is a bad habit where you end up buying so much stuff that you don’t need. It’s different if you are buying filler items that you actually intended to buy or need sooner or later. Those clearance prices sure are tempting though.
