No one wants to feel like they missed out. This mentality applies to sale-shopping. Sometimes it's hard to resist the big red "SALE" sign. You shouldn't feel like another sale will never appear again, they happen all the time. Take a look through the inventory, if you find something you've wanted for a while, buy it. But don't go into the store with the mentality, "I need to purchase something before I leave." There's a good chance you'll leave with the most mediocre graphic T-shirt or a handful of striped polo shirts. The truth is: you're not missing out on anything, really. Your wallet will feel fatter at the end of the month, and nothing feels better than financial stability (or not having to ask your folks for beer money).
