It's one thing if it's something you would have bought anyway....


....like if you have a coupon for a dollar off a basic need like toothpaste and the coupon is going to expire soon. No reason not to go ahead and buy the toothpaste—you're going to need it anyway. Or, similarly, my sneakers are wearing out and I was going to need to replace them soon, so I used a $30 off coupon my wife had to get a pair at DSW last weekend. That made sense to both of us because within the next few months I was going to have to buy a pair anyway.

But buying something you don't use and don't need just because it's on sale or you have a coupon doesn't make sense to me.
