Evaluate purchases by cost per use

Buy strictly only the things you'll actually use

There are things that you may find attractive to buy, or that you find so eye-catching that you think it would be great to have. But are you really going to make use of it? Or it would be an unnecessary purchase?

The most advisable thing is that you make purchases after having thought carefully about what you really need, and what is it you don't have. This way you avoid buying things you already have and save yourself some money.

For example, it may seem more financially responsible to buy a trendy $5 shirt than a basic $30 shirt, but only if you ignore the quality factor! When deciding if the latest tech toy, kitchen gadget, or apparel item is worth it, factor in how many times you’ll use it or wear it. For that matter, you can even consider cost per hour for experiences.

You must also keep in mind when it comes to clothing, that you should always try on the pieces before making the purchase. It is important that you see how it fits and how it looks so you can be sure that you will use it after you have it in your closet.
