When it comes to saving money, there’s a simple formula that often works:
Patience + Ready Money = Savings.
I see this all the time. If you’re willing to wait for a deal, AND you have the c-a-s-h to purchase it when the time comes, you can often save a ton of moolah!
Examples are many. I needed a stand for a new aquarium. The going price is around $60. I’ve been looking for one for a few weeks. Yesterday, Walmart had them closeout priced for just $15.
In the current economy there are many deals to be had, expecially if you can avoid putting it on a credit card (or something more sinister, like a home equity loan)
