The Con In The ‘Deal’

If you buy something you don’t need for $50 because it was marked $30 off, you didn’t save $30. You just spent $50.

This feels obvious now, but isn’t always obvious when the sale is right in front of you.

Same goes for life decisions. Just because you get offered a new job, contract or promotion, it doesn’t mean you have to take it.

Often these deals have terms and conditions which aren’t featured on the label.

Spend your money wisely, but your time even more so.

If the deal is the reason you want to take the leap, it’s probably not worth enough to warrant spending anything.
