Wait A Minute!


I was just about to do it, too.

I’m talking about buying something on sale.  Don’t get me wrong — I love a bargain.  But buying on sale is tricky.  It’s easy to fall into “but it was on sale” rationalization.

There’s only one question to ask yourself when you’re about to grab that shirt that’s 30% off.  Would you have purchased it when it was full price?

If “yes” it’s a true score.  Otherwise…well, you know what to do.

    Hi Ellen, Agreed. This is an important rule. I also apply it when I see those so very ‘amusing’ and ‘cute’ ethnic garments one sees when on holidays in exotic locations. Would I have bought it at my local store?

Some say she's tart and arch, but she knows fabulous when she sees it, and that's what she writes about. Get her book, The Essentials of Fabulous, on Amazon. More about me...
