Deals - Do You Buy Because You Need it?

Ask a Question

Do you buy a deal because it's a good deal or because you actually need it?

Depends how good the deal is 🤣 Most things i need or would be ideal for gifts. If something is really cheap then i will find a use for it 🙊

I only buy to replace for myself.

The price makes no difference to me if I do not actually need the item.

If I think there's a good chance I'll need the item in future, and it's a great price, I might buy it, but it depends.

Same with freebies and glitches. I used to go mad for any freebie but ended up not using most - I only go for what I think I will use, or can gift easily.

If it's something I'll wonder what to do with, and have it sitting around for ages, I don't bother anymore.

It can be a tough thing to say no to a good deal or a freebie, but it means someone else that really wants or needs it might get it, and you don't have something taking up space.

Only if I actually need it. I don't buy stuff that I don't need.

We are on the same page in our thinking!

The only time I bulk buy is for essentials for the kitchen or bathroom. Saves quite a bit of money too.

Ceebers I do that as well! If it is something non perishable that I will use and it saves me money then I will buy it in bulk.

I do not go for the deals the majority of the times as I have everything that I need. I *almost* got sucked into some of the deals but my bank card has a strong opinion and a say in my shopping experiences so no I do not buy deals 🤣

Only if I need or really want but don't buy simply because it's cheap.

I’m usually focused on what I need but I must admit that I have done a few impulse buys.

When I need something I search for deals. I like to use this site to spot extra deals that might be good for presents as I hate doing this at the time as you spend too much. Also now and again you can find a silly deal and buy something interesting for yourself.
