A bargain isn’t a saving if you don’t need it.

An experienced frugal lifer, Frugal Queen (http://frugalincornwall.blogspot.co.uk/?m=1), has reminded me that you aren’t saving by buying bargains if you don’t really need what you’re buying.  I was gushing about the joy of finding bargains in charity shops but a blog post by the Frugal Queen made me think more about what I was buying.  As part of my frugal living I am doing my best to clear my clutter and “buying bargains” isn’t going to help that side of things is it!!  So I’m still browsing the charity shops but I’m only buying when I really need it.
