I love sales! I love getting more bang for the buck. I don't think sales devalue a product but do agree that when it always goes on sale, it's hard to pay the full price for it.

Sales simply get me to spend more or reel me in to finally make the purchase I've been wanting to for awhile. I may kick myself if the sale starts the following day that I ordered mine but that's the chance you take. Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't.

Default love sales

One thing I have noticed at least with Hobby Lobby there sales on scrapbook stuff rotate on a 5 to 6 week schedule. So I plan my embellishments when the spare parts line is on sale at 50%. Paper usually goes on sale the next week. Then I go in a buy whatever is on sale for that week. Generally don't buy a whole lot of anything else unless I really need it. Don't buy anything at michaels unless it is a speciality item I can't get cheaper elsewhere then I use the 40% coupons.

I love sales!!! I don't care if I bought it at $20 and it is now for sale for $15 or $2. As long as I get my turn to take advantage of a sale someday, I can't begrudge someone else's fortune.

So, companies, I love sales!! Keep them coming!
I purchased a something from SU just before the Bundle Promotion - not knowing - even as a demo - that it was going on sale in a few days. The item was a big one as far as $ goes and when I saw that it was on the Promotion and I had missed out. I was not mad. I know the next Promotion will come around and I will take advantage of that. And if not - that is okay. You can't make everyone happy all the time. If you try you will go nuts for sure. I hadn't even received the item I ordered yet when the sale was released. It was almost the next day after I ordered it!

That's okay - I am sure many others did save - I was just not meant to!
