MOMA Meme - the 24 hour rule

August 19th, 2007 at 04:32 pm

My best advise for saving money is to use the 24 hour rule.

Never by anything that you haven't thought of for 24 hours. So if you see that bright shiny gizmo you NEED, either at the dollar store or at th electronics store don't buy it. If you really want it, go back for it tomorrow or the day after.

Most of the time by then you have forgotten what it is you couldn't live without or you have realized its not something you can either afford or need.

I love this rule because it doesn't make me feel deprived yet it saves me money and helps me distinguish between wants and needs.

    It also gives you time to investigate alternatives. Finding something at home that can take the place of the dodad or gizmo! Great idea!
