Shopping tip: To avoid “buyer’s remorse” think acquire instead of buy. Acquiring means you have carefully looked at value, longevity and price and knowing that you will get good use from the thing you are spending your hard earned money for. Questions to ask yourself: do I really need that? can I find a better price elsewhere? are there other things with a higher priority to purchase first? Learning how to wait is a valuable tool.
