The first thought that comes to mind when one says Orlando Florida – after Mickey Mouse Ears, Cinderella’s Castle and coasters, of course – is shopping. For the first two days of this trip I felt like I was in an episode of extreme couponing. On top of the instore sales there are coupon books, extra savings if you spend over a certain amount, another extra saving if you’re an international shopper. Soon, you’re getting clothes for free. No I’m kidding.
The issue with such sales is that they suck you in and make you think, “I just have to have it because, well, I’m saving like ten dollars!” Sales usually end with you hvaing to wear a shoe that is one size bigger than your normal size, or a situation very similar. I recently suffered this fate and have come to the conclusion that it just isn’t worth it. At the end of the day, a discount does not mean free.
I had this premonition of sale woes before I even stepped foot onto the plane to Florida, so I made a vow to intensely study my possible buys and to constantly repeat those three magic words, ‘quality over quantity’. Quality doesn’t always necessarily equal expensive, you just have to have an eye for it.
