While in many ways this may sound like the worst idea when it comes to saving money, for a lot of things just buying what you need today as oppose to the value of your purchase can save you money in many ways.
For example, before I saw a 4 gig USB memory stick for about $26 with the 8 gig model costing about $47. So based on value the 8 gig model would have been the better purchase value wise if you think about it. Instead though, all I really needed was the 4 gig and so I decided to go with that one and for these items in particular I know that they drop like a rock.
Sure enough, just recently I saw the 8 gig model on sale for a price of about $18. So thinking about it, if I really wanted to I could now buy that model on top of having the one I already own for the same price I would have paid before if I bought the higher model.
That goes to show you that sometimes itâ€™s not always about buying what gives you the best value necessarily to save money as just getting what you need is something to consider as well.
