But what happens when something on the list becomes “too cheap not to buy”? Um, awesome things, that’s what happens. So say you’ve been, oh I dunno, monitoring the cost of a trip to Iceland, figuring that $1,000 all in is the average price for airfare, hotel, and a coupla Aurora Borealis-related activities. Well then I suppose you’d be an idiot not to book the trip if you saw a deal to nab it at $600. That’s 40% off, fellow math whizzes. And where I come, 40% off is “too cheap not to buy.”
I’ll admit that I wasn’t really planning on raiding the vacation fund this quickly after we got back from Key West, but the trip really was too cheap…well, you know the drill. In my book, this type of spend is totally justifiable, even though the timing was a bit off. It was on the list, I wasn’t going to go into debt by handing over my debit card number, and I was more or less saving money since I was going to go ahead and book such a trip in the near future anyway. Sometimes, I love financial justification!
What say you? What's your "too cheap not to buy" policy??
