"On Sale" Banners

We do not spend our money wisely too often. We love buying things we want instead of things we need. Blame it to the those "on sale" banners and signs. Those "on sale" banners has a psychological effect on us which urge us to buy. More often than not we are tempted to buy things which are not in our list of needs because of those "on sale" banners flaunting inside our favorite mall or grocery stores. 
Businessmen use these banners to promote their product effectively. These banners hanging on banner brackets may look simple and less expensive compared to the huge billboards. But it has a massive effect on us especially to our pockets. I suppose this is the main reason why every mall has banner bracket installed on the walls. These banner brackets are not only use to promote the store owner's business. But it is also one of their means of earning. It is quite hard to look the other way especially when all all you see around you are on sale. I admit that I am one of a those people who are easily tempted by these products which are offered at a very low price. No matter how hard I try not to buy these things I want, I ended up buying all of them. A wise man once said that "We buy things that we don't need with money that we don't have to impress people we don't like ".  But that is not always the case. There are times that we buy things we do not need simply because they are on sale and there may not be another chance that there will be a price drop on these products.

Wise spending is hard to achieve. It takes an herculean effort to resist buying things we want when they are on sale. Many tried and failed. It is only wise to avoid stores which you know is on sale to avoid temptation. Always remember that these products will be on sale again eventually. Never let these on sale banners fool you again.
