In 2009, I bought a new washing machine at the beginning of the year, which cost me $250, and a new dishwasher for $400.
At the end of the summer, I realized that the new dishwashers were all that was needed to keep the washing machine running.
And so I did what any smart, savvy millennial would do: I bought everything else.
I got a new phone, a new laptop, a brand-new camera, a bunch of new stuff.
I also bought an air conditioner for $300.
And the next time I needed a dishwasher, I did it.
I was able to keep my house running and clean, even though I was spending $250 on a new appliance.
So I was doing what any savvy millennial who buys a new TV, laptop, and smartphone would do.
And, by the way, the smart thing I did was buy a new car.
So if you’ve been saving money by buying things that you need instead of buying stuff you want, you’ve done it.
The problem is, buying things you don’t need is still pretty risky.
And for the most part, it’s not worth it.
But if you have a really good budget and know how to shop for things that will save you money, then you can make the most of it.
And this article explains how.
