Taming the Trolley: Part 2

2. Bargain does not necessarily mean win.
When you see a "sales" sign or sticker, or hear your favorite store has just moved that jacket you want to the clearance section, you might get a little giddy. Saving money? Yes, please! However, sales aren't always what they seem. In fact, you could end up giving the store more money during a sale than you would have on a normal day.

It might sound impossible, but retailers know how to work the sales system to bring in business, which means your wallet might be a little lighter. Here are few things to keep in mind:

Bargain Hunting
Have you ever gone bargain hunting, where you shopped only for items with deep discounts? This happens to most people on Black Friday, and most people lose at the end of the day. Why? Because most of the stuff they bought were not part of their budget nor did they need it. Remember this important principle…

If something cost R1000, and it is on sale for R750, and then you decide to buy it, you did not save R250. You spent R750. read more

On November 24, 2017, a bomb ripped through a Masjid in Egypt’s northern Sinai region as gunman opened fire on worshippers shortly after the Friday prayer at the al-Rawdah Masjid. The attack killed 305 people - including 27 children - and wounded 120, in what was the deadliest attack in the country’s recent history.

The attack was a cruel turning point for the country as prior to this, attacks on Masaajid in Egypt were very rare.  It is not known who was behind the attack.

The fellow was being sold a very cheap suit. "But the left arm is a lot longer than the right arm," he complained.

"That's why the suit is such a bargain," the sales clerk explained. "Just cock your left shoulder up a little, like this, and tuck this left lapel under your chin a bit, like this."

"But the right leg is way too short," argued the customer.

"No problem," the sales clerk answered. "Just keep your right knee bent a little at all times, walk like this, and no one will notice. That's why this suit is only thirty dollars."

Finally, the fellow bought the suit, cocked his left shoulder into the air, tucked the suit's left lapel under his chin, bent his right knee, and limped out of the store toward his car. Two doctors happened along and noticed him.

"Good heavens," the first doctor said to the second, "look at that poor crippled fellow."

"Yeah," answered the second doctor. "But doesn't that suit fit great?"
