5 rules of thumb on: intelligent consumerism

Five tips for wise consumerism

 

  1. Do not need – do not consume – When you are debating the feasibility of the purchase, remember that what you need to buy you defined in advance, in most cases before you leave the house. Don’t be tempted to buy a product you didn’t plan to buy.
  2. Compare prices – Before you go shopping, do some market research: check different stores and the websites of stores or service providers and sites where you can compare the prices of products. Shop at the place that best suits you.
  3. Small print – big traps – tempting deal? Read the fine print. They may make the purchase worthwhile redundant.
  4. Regret it? – Not every purchase is a Catholic wedding. The conditions for canceling the transaction are part of it. Include them in considerations of the feasibility of the purchase.
  5. Check your account – Before you leave the store, check that you were charged only for what you purchased, that the price on the invoice matches the price on the product, and that the amount of the credit card and bank account download is the same as the purchase amount.
