Default Cold Turkey or responsible spending 2012

Several said they wanted this thread to continue in 2012 so here it is.

Some people have so much stuff they want to stop buying altogether and use what they have.
Others just want to cut back on purchases and make wiser selections.

Here is a place to put ideas and goals to spend wisely .

One thing I have done in the past is when I want only one or two things and the site has free shipping on $50, $75 or more I DO NOT look for more things to buy just to get the free shipping. I pay the shipping IF it is within reason or I don't buy it.

For 1 or 2 light weight dies or clear stamps $3 -$3.50 for shipping is my limit. $2 for the postage and $1 for the mailing envelope or exact postage and the cost of the mailing envelope. If the shipping is more than that I don't buy. I feel brick and mortar stores have a lot of overhead that on-line stores don't have so I expect better prices from on-line stores

To my thinking it is not wise spending to try to find $20 or $30 more in products just to get free shipping.
