Are Your Spending Habits in Harmony with Your Values?
I thought my money habits were in harmony with my values. That is, until I encountered a monster sale at the Coach outlet store last week and almost forgot everything. I’m not really a “shopper,” fortunately. I dislike the crowds and bustle of shopping malls. Like most people, I have a limited amount of discretionary income and try to spend wisely. I love a good bargain and am usually willing to wait for a sale or to spend time comparison shopping until I find the best deal on something I need.
This time though, I was at the outlet mall to look for a dress for an upcoming event when I saw the huge SALE! signs at the Coach outlet store. I’m not really a fan of Coach products but stepped inside to see what they had. It was a feeding frenzy. They had a huge clearance section with bags for 50% off and were giving each person a coupon for an additional 40% off. Wow!
