My husband and I have been attending a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace Class every week, and last night's lesson was on Buyer Beware. In it, Dave lays out the five wise and worthy steps to walk through before making a purchase:
Waiting overnight before making a purchase.
Carefully considering your buying motives. No amount of stuff equals contentment or fulfillment.
Never buying anything you do not understand.
Considering the "opportunity cost" of your money.
Seeking the counsel of your spouse.
The foremost thought running through my head during last night's class?
...good thing I bought these little beauties (on the spot) three days prior.
