Money Matters: Steal or Just a Sale?


Habitual Overspending

Love to shop? Join the club: In 2011, we spent about $4.7 trillion (yes, trillion!) in retail sales, according to the U.S. Commerce Department.
And who hasn’t overspent at one time or another?With new merchandise refreshed every season, every month—or, at discount retailers like Target and T.J. Maxx, every week—department stores can be a minefield if you go in uninformed. Especially since stores are designed to make you drop as much cash as possible.
Floor layouts, salespeople’s strategies and even storewide sales tap into our most basic consumer impulses. But not this fall: Here’s how you can simply determine if you’re getting a steal or lured by just another sale.
“A SALE ISN’T WORTH IT IF IT’S LESS THAN 30%.”  (PLUS, A GIVEAWAY!)
