I still remember the times when I did not have to worry about money too much. Whenever I wanted to buy something, I did not have to wait for it to be on sale in order to be able to afford it. Of course, I have never been a millionaire, but I was still able to afford many things I dreamed about. It all changed recently. I became a smarter shopper. I might have been forced to do become one due to the current circumstances in which I happened to find myself in, but I now think twice before spending any money on anything. I usually wait for some sort of sale before I decide to buy something for me, but I do not mind it as looking for sales can be a lot of fun too.
